We Remember

THIESSEN, William James “Bill”

September 17, 1931 — March 29, 2021

With deep sorrow and loving hearts we had to say goodbye to our Dad and husband Bill who passed away at Mountainview Village care home in Kelowna, BC, where he spent the last months of his life. He leaves behind his best friend and loving wife of 34 years, Ursula and children Robert (Kim), James (Ute) and Daniel (Marion).

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1931, Bill moved to Kelowna in 1971 where he established a successful and respected career as a Lawyer. He was also a long-standing member of the Kelowna Golf and Country Club.

Despite his declining health he continued to be the same reassuring father and spouse.

He will be greatly missed by his family and friends, known as a gentleman and appreciated for his kindness, empathy, and quick wit.

The family wants to thank the many caregivers who supported Bill in his last years, in particular Dr. Michael Bobyn, his trusted longtime family physician.

Due to Covid-19, there will be no service at this moment.  In lieu of flowers please make a donation to a charity of your choice.
