Survived by siblings, Angeline, Isabel (Karl) Parker, Sylvia, Aline, Jerry, Dorothy, Joyce, Marcella, Morris, Gordon, Dana and predeceased by sister Anita. Ovide enjoyed many activities, such as curling, fishing, hunting and excelled as a pitcher in fastball. He was a member of the Penticton Golf Club for many years, winning the club championship in 1984, 1987 and 1991. His name graces golf trophies throughout the interior of B.C, Alberta and Saskatchewan. His greatest passion in the last few years was watching his grandchildren in sports and other activities.
