Reo Roe Rocheleau

May 17, 2023
 In loving memory ~

A well-known and well-loved member of the Kamloops and Nelson communities, Reo Roe Rocheleau passed away peacefully in Kamloops on May 17, 2023, surrounded by his family. He was 91 years young.

Reo is survived by his children, Rod (Heather) Rocheleau, and Lolina (Robert) Koopmans, and his four grandchildren, Alexandra, Carmina, Emma, and Sarah. Reo met Rod and Lolina’s mother, Lolita, while vacationing and they fell in love. Reo brought Lolita and her two children to Canada where they settled in Nelson, BC.

From his early years in Medicine Hat, Reo showed an aptitude for business and undertook many entrepreneurial adventures throughout his working years. Reo owned and operated Reo’s Video store in Nelson for many years, and even after selling the business it continued to operate with the same name.

Reo was known for his loud laugh, zest for life, and love for his family. He was always ready with words of advice and for a game of Chinese checkers. Reo will be missed, but will live on in the hearts of those he touched.
