In addition, the program promotes pride and leadership among the participants; it provides an incentive for carriers to attract high calibre employees; it encourages drivers to train themselves to the highest standards in order to be able to work alongside the “best of the best” in their industry.

The night, albeit a sad one, was a huge success thanks to the following trade associates and friends:

One year ago today Erv Doerksen '#1' was tragically taken from us. Erv's family arranged a small memorial unveiling a bench with a plaque in Erv's name. Around 80 of Erv's Family & Friends attended this rainy event to honor Erv's memory.

The bench is located alongside the Sumas River, approx. 1 km east along the walking trail on the north side of the river from the Eldridge Rd Parking Lot (Just North of Akinson Road, by North Parallel Road, Abbotsford). This area was chosen as Erv & his family took many walks here.

It is with deepest regrets that today we announce a rockslide tragically claimed the life of our most senior driver, Erv Doerksen. He was killed instantly by a falling rock that entered the cab he was driving.

Erv was a strong, caring man who touched everyone’s life in different ways. His faith, love and compassion made lasting impressions on everyone he met. He was loved with a love beyond telling and will be missed with a grief beyond tears….

You are forever in the hearts and minds of the loving family you have left behind…

Rest in Peace
Our Dear Friend
