Bill was predeceased by his first wife Jessie in 1985 and his second wife Bernice in 2002.

He was known to his grandchildren and great-grand children as “Gido” and “Grandpa”. Bill and Jessie moved to Oliver in 1960 where he owned Bill’s Shoe Store for many years until retirement in 1977. He was very active in the community and especially in the Knights of Columbus. He enjoyed fishing, camping, square dancing and walking. He was also an avid gardener and enjoyed socializing with friends and family. In 2009, to be closer to his daughter Sharon, he moved to Salmon Arm where he lived at the Shuswap Lodge Retirement Residence. He will be sadly missed by all. Special thanks to Dr. McDonald, the Salmon Arm Medical Clinic, the staff on the 2nd floor at Shuswap Lake General Hospital and the staff at the Shuswap Lodge for their care.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. It was always such a pleasure to see Bill out walking in the community, he always had that great smile and a hug. We weren’t related by blood but to us and our girls he will always be “Grandpa Bill”. God Bless
