We Remember


William “Barry” Whiston passed peacefully at home on April 1, 2023, in Kelowna, BC, at the age of 82.  Barry was born in Essex, England and immigrated to Montreal, QC in 1966, he slowly moved west where he met his wife, Carole (deceased) in Calgary, AB. They then moved to Coquitlam, BC, where they had and raised their 2 children, Tina and Andrew.  As an animal lover, Barry’s family also included 8 cats over his lifetime and 1 beloved dog.

Barry was an avid sailor, enjoying many trips up the BC Coast with his family. He was also an honorary lifetime member of the Rocky Point Sailing Association, where he dedicated countless hours to growing the club and promoting the sport of sailing to local youth.

Barry and Carole were keen travellers who were fortunate to have taken many trips together over the years and into retirement.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to BC Cancer or any animal charity in his honour.
