Bill was born in Kelowna and raised on a fruit farm in the Belgo District. He lived his life to the fullest, pursuing his many passions including: fishing, boating, hiking, skiing, photography and painting. As a landscape artist in the Okanagan Valley, he took great pride in sharing his talents with his children and grandchildren. He touched the lives of many through his various careers as a fruit grower of apples, cherries and grapes, journeyman electrician, publisher, real estate agent and land developer. Bill contributed to his community and was involved in many land developments in the early days of Rutland, Black Mountain and the Joe Rich area.
As a family man, he was loving and compassionate. Throughout his life, his family enjoyed countless hours of boating and swimming with friends on the Okanagan Lake. Many summers were also spent exploring and cruising the west coast shores of BC, winters were spent south of the border hiking desert canyons and trails. There was no slowing Bill down, once he had an idea, his positive outlook, combined with his focus and drive, enabled him to successfully accomplish many of his goals. Bill was a man of his word, with high standards and integrity. He will be so greatly missed by his family and friends.
