In Loving Memory

Victor Ivan Steven Klassen

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Victor Ivan Steven Klassen of Kamloops, BC, on August 27, 2023, at 76 years of age. Victor is survived by his loving wife Arli Klassen, his children Angela (Jim) Klassen of Kamloops, BC, Shannon (Marco) Sirch of Beaumont, AB, Steven (Amanda) Klassen of Christina Lake, BC, and Amanda (Cody) Savisky of Kamloops, BC. Also left to cherish his memory are grandchildren Kristopher (Jessica), Devon (Marie), Travis (Tiffany), Dylon (Judian), Victoria (Les), David (Amber), Brianna (John), Hayden (Colby), Alexei, Katya, and Tennessee (Bryce), great-grandchildren Oliver, Silas, Rowan, Blake, Amelia, and Lydia as well as his sibling Bruce Klassen (last of 12 siblings), and many nieces and nephews.

Born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan in 1947 to David and Anna Klassen, Victor lived in Big River until he was 16 when the family moved to Kamloops. On October 16, 1966, he met the love of his life, Arli, on a blind date and in 1967 they married. In 1969, their family was started and it has continued to expand with grandchildren and great grandchildren. The last few years have been difficult as his physical and mental health disintegrated, but he passed peacefully while waiting for his teeth to be brought to him. Dad enjoyed building model airplanes, playing crib, reading, and watching MASH. He spent 60 years serving his God, Jehovah, and died with the Bible’s hope for the future in his heart. Many thanks to friends and family for their support over the years. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to

    Our last time together Victor expressed his conviction in God’s promises in the way of Bible Prophecies being fulfilled over the years and a Scriptural promise for the future paradise. We are looking forward to seeing Victor when he wakes up in the future resurrected. Big hugs to all the family and may Jehovah the God of all comfort be with you.

    Victor was a giant among men, he fiercely loved his family, he was someone you could count on. He always gave great advice and I loved going there and talking to him about life. He was devoted to his faith and put that first. I deeply respected him and will always have fond memories of him.
    Love and light to Arli, Angela, Shannon, Amanda and Steven. Your husband and Dad was a great man.

    I speak for my family when I say that we have great memories with Victor and Arli and the kids.
    There was always a great meal, delish glass of wine , great company and a mutual love for Jehovah and the hope that the Bible promises.
    Old age and poor Health has really made it difficult for mom and dad now, but I know that they would shed tears for the loss of a dear old friend.
    Much love to all.
    ❤️ Angela and family

Love always Angela and family.
