A Good Man Gone

Ponti, Louis Emilio

August 6,1930 – December 27, 2015

Salmo, BC

It is with great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Louis. He was a devoted husband, father, brother, grandfather and uncle. His loving wife of 56 years, Joan, predeceased him April 1, 2008. He also leaves behind his children, Pat (Lorinda), Kim (Scott) and Randy (Morven), his brother, Bert (Connie), and four grandchildren, Robb, Kalyn, Kevin and Ryan. He was the cherished patriarch of the family and was a well known millwright and avid community volunteer. While working in the mining and logging industry and raising his family in Salmo, he led a wonderful life, full of family gatherings and friends.  Louis loved to fish, golf and travel.  His greatest joy was his family and friends. In late Spring there will be a celebration of a life well lived.
