Bill James Sanford

April 3rd, 1947 – September 2nd, 2007

With deep sorrow we announce the passing of Bill James Sanford: husband, father, grandfather and good friend. He passed away peacefully at the age of 60 in Vernon Jubilee Hospital on September 2nd, 2007.

Bill enjoyed a full and exciting life. He enjoyed the outdoors, traveling, dancing and had an incredible ability to work with his hands. He was a positive family man and a hard worker with a great sense of ethics and humor. His courageousness saw him through a brave battle with cancer, with his family always by his side.

He is survived and will be deeply and forever missed by his loving wife, Kathy, his mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and his three step-children. Bill was predeceased by his father.

Thank you for sharing your love of life, soul and heart with me!

Your soul mate and wife, Kathy.

Till we meet again.
