IRELAND, Stacey Kim

IRELAND, Stacey Kim

Born February 7, 1977.

It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Stacey Kim Ireland on June 19, 2017 at Kelowna General Hospital surrounded by his loving family.

Tragically taken from us, Stacey will be forever cherished by the loves of his life; wife Chelan and children Lily and Heath. Stacey is also survived by; his parents Kim and Judy, mother & father-in- law Scott & Tammie, grandmothers Joyce & Rose, brother Scott (Candice), sister Kim (Darin), brother-in-law Justin (Marisa) his niece Kailea and his nephews Ethan, Maddox & Hayden (Broskis for life!).
He will be lovingly remembered by many extended family members and friends. Stacey is predeceased by his grandparents Ross and Winnie, grandfather Gordon and uncles Rick and Vern.

It is impossible to convey in words the tremendous void Stacey leaves behind for all who knew him. His infectious smile and magnetic personality were only surpassed by his devotion to his friends and family. Profoundly loyal, Stacey was an amazing husband, son, brother, father and friend, who would put other's needs before his own.

In true Stacey fashion, he will continue his legacy through organ donation. Please consider honoring Stacey

    Stacey was part of a group of co-workers that will be tremendously missed. This was such a tragic loss. Throughout the years of working together, Stacey and I had great times working and learning together. He helped anyone and everyone he could all the time. You asked he was there. We enjoyed so many laughs and good times that I could not even count. Our hearts are with Chelan, Lily and Heath.
    With saddened hearts from all of East, West Kootenay and Okanagan Construction Teams.

    I was shocked to hear of Stacey's passing this week. He's just too young. But I have many memories as I'm sure everyone that knew him has that will keep them going. My thoughts are with all of you and the turmoil you must be going through at this time. You have strong family ties that will help you and the little ones together, just think of everyone that is praying for you.

    It saddens me greatly to hear of this tragic loss. Stacey was a ray of sunshine in the office and was always a pleasure to deal with. After my retirement and
    visiting the office I was always disappointed if he was out in the field and I missed his smile.
    He will be greatly missed for sure. My sympathies to all of his family.
