William Alexander Arnott
August 14, 1929 to June 18, 2015
With sadness we said good-bye to our wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, Bill Arnott, on June 18, 2015. We miss him dearly but understand that it was time for the journey home.
Bill was known to be very active in the community over the years, as a Rotarian, as a businessman owning Wm. Arnott Jewellers for forty years, president of the Downtown Vernon Association, and many other community involvements. Bill retired in 1995 and since then has enjoyed the company of many wonderful buddies playing pool, ping pong, curling and golfing first at Predator Ridge and in the latter years, Hillview Golf Course.
Of all the things that Bill did and enjoyed, he was the most proud of his family; his wife of 59 years, Penny, his son Billy Arnott and his wife Debbie Skoda, his daughter Susan Arnott, his daughter Bobbie Wood and her husband Len, Bill’s grandchildren Christy Dickinson and her husband Levi, Melissa Hinman, and Steve Wood and Bill’s great grandson who joined the family on May 26, 2015, Thomas Alexander Dickinson.
A Memorial Tea to celebrate Bill’s life will be held Saturday June 27, 2015 at the Schubert Centre between the hours of 2-4 PM.
Arrangements have been entrusted to
Vernon Funeral Home, Phone: 250 542 0155.
