BJERRE, Vaughn
Passed peacefully at the Intensive Care Unit Lion's Gate Hospital, Vancouver, on September 25th at 3: 30 p.m., embraced by his wife Patricia and daughters, Sheryl, Jennifer and Julia. Diagnosed with leukemia, his cancer went into remission for six years and for that, his loved ones are grateful. Born 1925, in Gammel Lindholm, near Copenhagen, Denmark, Vaughn, at the age of 4 years of age, immigrated with his parents Niels and Kristine BJERRE to Prince Albert, in Midwestern Canada. In his early 20's in the 1940s, Vaughn launched what would be an impressive career in the Broadcasting Industry, spanning over 35 years. As a young radio announcer - ('Yawn with Vaughn' morning show among his credits) his talents lead to program directing - On-air CKSO Sudbury, CKWX and CKMO Vancouver 1940s, Program Director CFRA Ottawa, CKSL London 1950s, Vice President of CHFI / CFTR - Roger's Broadcasting - Toronto 1960s-70s. His distinctive, satiny voice will always resonate in the memory of those who knew him. As a friend to many, he will be remembered for his wonderful sense of humour, his unfailing honesty, his overwhelming generosity, and his sensitivity towards animals and nature. A loving, caring husband to Patricia, the greatest father with dedicated support and adoration to Sheryl, Jennifer and Julia, father-in-law to Darrell and Roberto whom he treated like sons, and beloved Grampa to Robin, Adam and Gori, he will be cherished and missed forever. Memorial Service to be held Friday October 13th at 11am, Sands Funeral Chapel, 1803 Quadra Street, Victoria, B.C. In lieu of flowers, we gratefully ask for a small donation made to: The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada, The Western Canadian Chapter, 310-1682 West 7th Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia V6J 4S6 (footnote: In memory of Vaughn BJERRE on cheque) and/or People for the Ethical Treatments of Animals.
