William (Bill) Kury

was born on July 18th, 1938 at Edam, Saskatchewan, the youngest of eight children born to John and Katherine Kury and was called Home to be with his Lord and Saviour on October 21st, 2012 at the age of 74 years.

Bill will be lovingly remembered by his three children, Melody (John) McKay, Bill (Lisa) Kury and Wade Kury; five grandchildren, Kevin Breiter, Tyler Kury, Kory Kury, Jonathan Kury and Justin Kury; two sisters, Nancy (Stan) Medynski and Ann Brandebura; one brother, Peter (Laura) Kury; and numerous extended family members. He was preceded in death by his wife Shirley; two brothers, Ralph and Harry; and two sisters, Stephanie and Mary.

Bill came with his family to Vernon in 1945 where he attended school. He has always worked with wood – he piled lumber at the mill at Sugar Lake, spent time at the Coldstream Planing Mill, was the head sawyer at Ganzeveld Bros. Sawmill

and at the Armstrong Sawmill. Bill even ran his own home based saw shop! He was a very kind man, a devout Christian, loved camping, reading and going on cruises. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Cremation preceded a private family Graveside Service which was held at the Pleasant Valley Cemetery followed by a time of fellowship and sharing at the Vernon Full Gospel Church.

As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Bill to the B.C. Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, 600-890 West Pender Street, Vancouver, B.C. V6C 1J9.
