KUPCHANKO William “Bill”
November 27, 1933 — October 12, 2023
Bill went to be with his Lord on October 12, 2023, at the age of 89. Bill was preceded in death by his loving wife of 51 years, Lieselotte “Liese”, in 2019. He is survived by his daughters Sharline (Kevin) Konkin, & Sandra (Gerald) Curtis, and son John (Barbara) Kupchanko; as well as his 10 grandchildren.
Bill, born on November 27, 1933, grew up on the family farm near Smoky Lake, AB. During a trip to Kelowna, BC, he met Liese, the love of his life. In 1968, Bill made the decision to leave his life in Alberta behind and return to Kelowna to marry Liese. Together, they raised three children on their 10-acre property. Over the course of three decades, the couple transformed it from an apple orchard into a home where farm animals roamed, and the orchard became a hay field where Bill spent countless hours.
Bill spent 30 years of his career at Cookson Motors and cherished his hunting trips.
The family is grateful for the loving care their dad received by Dr. Bobyn and Brookhaven Care Centre.
A Memorial Service will be held on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2023, at 11:00 AM, at the First Lutheran Church, 4091 Lakeshore Road, Kelowna, BC. A reception will follow.
