John Stuart Mansell

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John Stuart Mansell on May 20, 2024. Born October 5, 1938 in England, John came to Canada at age 17 where he enrolled and graduated from UBC with a BSF (Forestry) degree. After graduation he worked in various capacities in coastal logging camps followed by employment as Woods Manager in Radium Hot Springs, Clearwater, and Williams Lake. …Everyone can relate to John’s tales and adventures about grizzly bears and fishing in the Bella Coola Valley, or his menagerie of steers, pigs, chicken, ducks and geese on his acreage. To honor John’s life as a forester and Board director, we are gathering contributions for the Gavin Lake Forest Education Society. Donations may be made to (‘donate now’, “John funds”).
