ZWICK, WILLIAM (BILL) HERMAN

Bill was born on February 24, 1940 in Nelson, BC and passed away on November 18, 2015 in Kelowna at the age of 75.

He is sadly predeceased by his mother Elizabeth (1958), father Lester (1974), sisters Judy (1977), Elizabeth (1990), and Katherine (2010), and brothers Jake (2001) and Lewis (2010). Bill grew up in Midway B.C. and went on to work in the lumber mills in Midway, Cache Creek, the mine in Merritt, later to work in Kelowna at White Western Star, Brenda Mines and Caradon Deckor Doors.  His hobbies included hunting,fishing, curling, the ham radio, and coffee outings with family and friends.

He is survived by: his brother Richard Zwick, sisters-in-law Elizabeth Zwick and Nancy Zwick and many nieces

and nephews. Special thank you to Mario and Betty G for being there for Uncle Bill over that last years and giving him the comfort of home. Uncle Bill was a kind, gentle, caring, good man.  He was independent and even when his eyesight failed him he still went on his walks to the store and met his friends for coffee.  He liked a good joke and always made people laugh seeing the humour in a situation when he went out on his excursions throughout Kelowna. 

He said laughter was important for all.  He somehow kept his Driver’s Licence telling his niece Tina “so in an

emergency I can drive” – Tina always wondered what kind of emergency that might be (being he could not see very well).  He always told her that he was going to buy a car just to hear her reaction…ahh Uncle Bill.  He had a good memory and picked up a conversation from a last visit inquiring about how things

are going now.  He truly cared about people.  He loved his outings and was happy when he was taken out for lunch, dinner and for family occasions.  He will be missed dearly by his family and friends. Celebration of life will be held on Saturday, January 9th, 2016, at 1:00 p.m. at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.
