We Remember

DELANEY, William A.

July 20, 1936 — August 4, 2015


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bill Delaney, age 79, at Kelowna, B.C.

Bill was predeceased by his mother Mabel in 1938; his father Martin in 1987; as well as his stepdaughter Cindy in 1972; brother Glen in 2012; stepbrother Wade Tink in 1981; as well as numerous family caregivers during his early years.

He is survived by his loving wife Vera, 3 sons – Lyle, Steven and Kevin, 3 step children – Lynne, Sharon and Bob, brother – Dennis and his wife Christine, step brothers Albert and Veral Tink and Lorraine Dahm and their families; Donna and family (as close as a sister could get), and many grand and great grandchildren, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Bill enjoyed and did MOST things in his lifetime.  Ranking highest on the list was his love of fishing and camping – and our trips south for the winters in our “See-Ya” motorhome.

He also enjoyed many hobbies, such as model airplanes, ham radio operator, snowmobiling, boating, canoeing, and playing many instruments. He loved to jam with others playing violin, guitars, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, concertina, and keyboard. He loved performing magic shows for children, hosting pool parties, and spending quality time with good friends.

At Bill’s request there will be no service – but feel free to “tip one” for him.

“See Ya” later Bill.  You will be sadly missed by all those who loved you.
