If we don't stop this, no one will donate pictures to me, or anyone,

tell them to remove it.

Please note- This is NOT an Official Web Site for this Memorial,
It is only part of my series of Local History Pages.
As it stands now this page will record the Dedication Ceremony only.
I am NOT part of the Official Memorial Building Group,
This is only a page to help the promotion and awareness of the Memorial.

Located 12 miles east of Terrace BC
Beside the famous little
Usk Pioneer Chapel

This memorial and the Church are both on Private Property.
Please respect their Property, Church, and the Memorial.

Memorial dedicated to those who died
while working in the Forestry Sector in Northwest BC

Like all occupations, a person working for a living,
should not die from doing their job.

Logger's Memorial at Usk

A plaque affixed to one of the boulders at the Memorial, reads
 “In Memory of those who lost their lives in the Forest Industry.”

Dedication Ceremony was held
Apr 27, 2014, at 2 pm

Hard Hats and saw hanging in a tree
a symbol of a logger's death at that spot.

Frank Donahue gave a very good speech on the
reason for the Memorial.
Please click on link below to read that.
I also understand others had some input in the speech.
Tribute to Loggers.pdf

Some of those involved in the construction,
per the local newspaper article in Apr 2014,
Brian Lecleir, Bill McRae, and Doug Suttis

Joerg Jung, aka: JJ, aka: JJ's Woodart
carved a logger, from a stump of a cedar tree,
and it is now located just off highway 16,
 near the Stone Memorial above,
Just West of the Usk Pioneer Church.
It is worth the trip to see it in person.

Before the Unveiling

The Artist with his work

Carving modelled after Harry (Slim) Wesley Varner
his son Don Varner, is standing by the carving.
Slim came from Pennsylvania, USA in the early days,
 and worked as a teamster,
at various mines and sawmills in the Usk area.

I have decided to not put the list of men on this site,
until the memorial is completed.

I understand a permanent brass plaque will eventually
be placed on the memorial,
when all the correct names are collected.
So any changes and corrections,
 are important before that happens.
When the Brass Plaque is installed, I will add a photo here.
At that point it will be Public, and part of History.

I think it was also causing confusion with 2 or 3 lists floating around.
The builders at Usk will be the one and only contact.

I encourage families to submit their names to the Memorial,
In honour of their Son, Father, Grandfather, Husband, etc.
Most of these men are buried all over the north,
and this gives their friends, and fellow workers,
one place to come and pay their respects.
It is a good cause, and hope the builders
get the credit they deserve.

I will forward on name submissions,
If they happen to be sent to me,
but I am not an official part of the Memorial Builders Group.

I will be giving the list I compiled, as of May 20, 2014,
 to the Memorial builders at Usk, as soon as I can.

Memorial signs above, from the Dedication, May 9th,
More names have been added since.
Note- A few names and dates are wrong in the photos.
Correct spellings have been submitted.

I am an Amateur Historian, and Genealogist.
I use every source I can find, old newspapers, census, archives, etc.
I do a quick search for the names on these pages.
Therefore I do NOT profess to have 100% accurate information.
Use my info as a clue to do your own research.
I am not related to these folks, nor do I have hidden info.
I encourage everyone to visit their local Museum,
or buy a local history book for more info.
I attempt to connect people with their ancestor in these places.
If it works on just one person, per page, it is worth the time it takes me.
I do not charge for access to my pages,
I do not have any Ads on my pages.
Please "Link" to my page from Facebook, Blogs, etc.

copy and paste link below

Please do Not copy the pictures, or text on any page.
Please do Not ask to use pictures etc. on Facebook.
A "Link" to my pages, does the same thing.
Just copy the hyper link, URL, shown in your browser above,
and paste that into facebook etc.,
or copy the links I have on the left side.
That is the honest and proper way to do it!
