We Remember

RODDEN, William

October 23, 1932 — January 9, 2023

William Rodden was surrounded by family at the Okanagan Hospice House, when he peacefully went to be with the Lord on Monday, January 9, 2023.

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Bill immigrated to Canada in 1952, where he met and married the love of his life, Terry. In 1961, he graduated with RIA/CMA designation in accounting. Among his many achievements, he was President of the CMA of Canada in 1987 and was awarded his fellowship in 1988; he was a Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus; and he worked with the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul. He was an avid golfer, curler, and world traveller. Bill was richly blessed with a large and loving family.

William is held dear in the hearts of Teresa Rodden, his wife of 66 years; his children Julie Clark, Ron (Ramona) Rodden, Angela (Frank) Sham, Kit (Brett) Mottershead, and Kevin (Angela) Rodden; his 14 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren; as well as his siblings John (Janice) Rodden, Pat (Lloyd) Cowie, and Maureen Brown.

The family would like to give special thanks to Unit 4A at the Kelowna General Hospital, as well as to Hospice House, for the wonderful care he received.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Society of Saint Vincent de Paul.
