We Remember

LINDEN, William Frederick

July 16, 1937 — October 26, 2021

On October 26, 2021, Bill Linden passed away in the kind care of Cottonwoods Care Facility, at the age of 84.

Born on the July 16, 1937, in Kelowna, BC, Bill was the oldest of four children born to Nellie (née Zahara) & Anthony Linden. Bill was preceded in death by his dearly beloved parents; his much loved sister Sadie Bifford & brother-in-law John Bifford; and youngest brother Ted Linden. He is survived by his brother Jerry (Laura-Lee) Linden; nephew Tim (Carol) Linden and nieces Kim (Darren) Vucurevich & Jodie Ryan; great-nieces Chelsea & Kennedy, and great-nephews Reece & Ayden; and many Zahara cousins.

Bill and his family lived in Kelowna, BC while growing up. Then, Bill moved to Vancouver, BC for many years, returning to Kelowna in 2003. He resided in Kawanas Towers for many years, where he had easy access to shopping, restaurants and bus lines. Bill moved to Cottonwoods Care Facility (after an extended hospital stay), where he made friends with staff and caregivers. The staff always mentioned his kindness, gentleness, and his easy-going spirit. Hospitalized on October 8, 2021, after an aspiration episode, Bill quickly declined in health and was sent back to Cottonwoods, to pass in what was his home.

Faith in his Savour Jesus Christ was the cornerstone of how Bill lived his life.

Bill preplanned his final arrangements, and it was his wish to be laid to rest with a Graveside Service, to be held on Friday, October 29, 2021, at 10:00 am, at Lakeview Memorial Gardens Cemetery, 2850 Dry Valley Rd, Kelowna, BC. All are welcome to attend.
