On Tuesday January 24, 2012, Evaristo Soares (Ed) De Melo of Osoyoos passed away peacefully at the McKinney Place Extended Care Unit at the age of 86 years.
He was predeceased by his brother Manuel of Kitimat.
Ed will be fondly remembered by his loving wife Natalia; his son Leandro (Natty) and grandchildren Tina and Jeff of Osoyoos, his son John and grandchildren Nancy, Curtis, Rebecca and Peter and their mother Karen all of Kelowna; his sisters Gilda and Maria from Toronto; his brother-in-law Jose Alves (Liberta) of Kitimat; many nieces, nephews and extended family in Canada, the USA and Portugal.
Ed and Natalia were married in March of 1951 in Sao Miguel, Azores and he came to Canada in 1956. The family settled in Osoyoos in 1967 and purchased the orchard.
Ed worked many jobs over the years but his main occupations included with Alcan in Kitimat and he was self-employed operating an orchard in Osoyoos since 1967.
He also served many years as a director of the Monashee Co-op as a delegate to the BC Fruit Growers Association (BCFGA).

A reception hosted by the CWL in the church lower hall followed the interment.
The family would like to thank the staff, the nurses and doctors at SOGH and McKinney Place.
