In Memorium

Barney Smith sadly passed away in his sleep on January 25th, 2013. Although Barney had been battling cancer for the last five years his passing was not expected so soon or so sudden. Barney and his wife Peggy have been foster parents in Port Hardy for the past 20 years. They have had many, many children com into their home over the years. They have also hosted many foster parent support meetings, and were instrumental in organizing our annual Foster Family Picnics at Stories Beach. Barney was a first class guy and was passionate about the welfare of children and a strong family man with a great sense of humor. He will be missed deeply.
