February 28, 1927 – March 6, 2023
Bill was born on February 28th, 1927 in Whitesand, Saskatchewan and passed away on March 6th, 2023 in the North Okanagan Hospice, six days after celebrating his 96th birthday.
Bill will be lovingly remembered by his wife Olga, to whom he was married for 73 years; their children, Gladys, Bob, Doug and Melanie together with their spouses; six grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and extended family members.
He was preceded in death by all of his siblings. Bill touched the lives of so many people and will always be remembered for his witty sense of humor and contagious smile.
In respecting Bill’s wishes, he was cremated and a celebration of his life will take place at a later date.
The family wants to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Sharma, the staff of Vernon Jubilee Hospital 2 West, the North Okanagan Hospice and everyone at the Hamlets for taking such wonderful care of Bill.
“There is an A & W sucker born every day!” (Bill)
