In loving memory ~
It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that the families of Arthur Missler announce his peaceful passing at his home surrounded by love on Sunday March 27 2022 at the age of 91 years.
Art will be lovingly missed by his sister Eleanor, along with many Niece’s Nephew’s, great Niece’s & Nephew’s, dedicated loving Careaides and close friends.
He is predeceased by his beloved wife Jackie in 2019, parents Joseph and Elizabeth, siblings (Twins) Raymond and Adelaide, (Twins) Joe and Marjorie and Wilfred.
Art started his AMAZING career with RCMP in 1951. His first posting was in Port Alberni. This is where he met his beloved Jackie and this is where their wonderful life together would start. Being married on Art’s birthday in 1956.
They were BLESSED to start what would become the best year’s of their lives. Work, travel and adventure! Art would come home from work and say “We’ve been asked to go overseas again” They both loved it, whether it be Cairo, Milan, Rome, The Hague, Cologne Germany, Grindelwald Switzerland Beirut, East Africa, Hongkong, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines and India just to name a few!
After retiring from the RCMP in 1978 Art dabbled in a few projects until landing a job at Vancouver City Hall as the Security Coordinator retiring in 1995.
Art was a proud volunteer for many year’s at YVR as a Green coat, greeting and chatting with travelers sharing his own travel stories.
Art and Jackie were very involved with St. Joseph the Worker in Richmond where they made lifelong friends.
In 2017 Uncle Art made the decision to move back to Port Alberni so he and Aunty Jackie could be closer to family. I’m forever THANKFUL you did Uncle Art!!
Rest well Uncle Art, you are LOVED and missed
