Ralph Norman Blaus
February 13, 1950 – June 24, 2014
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Ralph Norman Blaus. He was a beloved son, brother, father and grandfather. He is survived by his loving mother, Mae, and leaves behind his sisters Linda and Chris (John), brother Ron, daughters, Heather (Jason) and Tracey (James), as well as his grandchildren Claire, Piers and Beatrice.
Born and raised in Victoria, he moved to Smithers in 1986 to raise his family. He spent the vast majority of his career working for the Lands Department of the Provincial Government where he made many lifelong friends. In his earlier years he loved baseball, coached softball and was a keen curler and golfer.
He spent a huge amount of his time supporting and volunteering at the Legion in Smithers, and dedicated a lot of his retired time there.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held at the Smithers Legion Tuesday July 8th, 4:00pm- 6:00pm.
