Daniel Victor McKillican (Slim) June 8, 1930 – Nov 12, 2021

Slim drove truck for more than 50 years, hauling various goods. He spent a good many years driving treacherous mountains to carry fallen trees to the lower camps, moving on to work for the B.C. highways. A proud time was working on the Coquihalla highway and being there on opening day. He received his Harley Davidson 50 yr. Rider pin, selling his ride a few years back.

Slim resided in Dogwood Valley near Hope BC for many yrs. before moving to Spences Bridge BC. Always open to strike up a conversation, often over Classic vehicles. With no formal training, becoming a clock restorer. The chimes were his favourite.

Daniel Victor McKillican (Slim) was born to John and Irene McKillican in Saskatchewan. The family moved west, later settling in the Mission BC area.

He is survived by son Cam (Sue) McKillican, daughters Vicki Sutherland, Laura Woiken and predeceased by son Dan McKillican 1999.
