    We regret to advise that Herbert Pook died peacefully in his sleep on 13 April 2006, just prior to his 94th birthday.

    Born in New Westminster, BC, he was a resident there for over 90 years. Herb served overseas with the Royal Canadian Engineers in the Second World War. He was a psychiatric nurse with the BC Government for over 40 years. He built the family home in the late 1940s and resided there until 2004. For over 60 years, he was a Legionnaire and Freemason.

    A Memorial Service is planned for Herb at 11:00 AM on Thursday, 20 April 2006 at Queens Avenue United Church, 529 Queens Ave, New Westminster. In lieu of flowers those wishing to do so should make donations in Herb's name to either the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the BC Cancer Society.
