Everett Wayne Kuhn

November 5, 1922 - May 28, 2013


It is with great sadness we announce the passing of a well-known local senior, Everett Wayne Kuhn, at the age of 90 in Nelson.   Everett will be forever remembered by his son, Ken, daughter-in-law Benita-Anne, and his grandsons, Bryan (Cheri), Greg (Tanya), and Scott (Sandra), his four great-granddaughters, his brother Lloyd, half-brothers Len and Ray, and half-sister Edna.  He was pre-deceased by his loving wife, Amy, and his son, Norm.

Ev was born in Irricana, AB and moved to Nelson in 1935 where he grew up, went to school, and played hockey and lacrosse.  In 1941 he moved to Vancouver Island to work in logging.  He enlisted in WW II and was sent to Europe to serve in the Army.  When he was discharged he came back to live in Nelson with his wife, Amy, and raised his family.  Ev worked for the Nelson Fire Department for eight years, the CPR for nine years, Algar’s Tire Shop for seven years, and then opened his own business, Andy’s Tire Shop.  He sold his business in 1989 when he retired.

He played lacrosse for many Nelson teams but also played lacrosse for the Spokane Dynamos in 1948 when the team won the Senior B. Championship for B.C.  Ev loved to play golf around the Kootenay golf courses.  He was a Life Member of the Granite Point Golf Club and served on the Board of Directors.  Ev was also an avid bowler and curler, enjoyed playing pinochle or dominoes at the Senior Centre, and enjoyed gardening on his patio. 

Ev and his wife, Amy, taught square dancing for over 25 years on the North Shore and taught 200 teenagers every Friday night at the Civic Centre gymnasium for many years.  He was awarded Citizen of the Year in Nelson in 1977 for his community service and volunteering.  Ev belonged to the Canadian Legion for 30 years and to the Nelson Kiwanis Club for 45 years.  He was President of the B.C. Seniors, Nelson Branch 51 from 2006 to 2010.  Ev will be missed by many—and especially by his good friend, Lucy Methuen.

A Celebration of Everett’s life will be held in early July in Nelson at the Senior Centre.
