Kazuaki Furuya “Barney”
September 21, 1927 – March 25, 2014
We announce the peaceful passing of Barney, beloved brother and friend. He succumbed to a short but hard fought battle with cancer. He was surrounded by the people who loved and cared for him. Barney leaves behind his older sister Chizuko and many beloved friends. Barney loved life and will be remembered for his passion of dancing, fishing, curling, music, baseball and the Vancouver Canucks. He remained in his hometown of Summerland his entire life. Barney was pre-deceased by his older brother, Hiro and older sister, Asa. At Barney’s request there will be no service. His ashes will be scattered on Yellow Lake, a favourite fishing spot, sometime during this upcoming summer.
