WILLIAM JAMES “BILL” NELSON

KATHLEEN NELSON

NELSON, WILLIAM JAMES “BILL” Born April 19, 1915 in Toronto and peacefully passed away February 9, 2012 in Kelowna in his 96th year.  Survived by his daughter Linda Sproule, granddaughter Bri Sproule and grandson Dylan Sproule.  Dad enjoyed many sports throughout his life,

including baseball and basketball in his younger days and bowling and golfing after retirement.  He was an avid reader (no glasses ever needed!) and thoroughly enjoyed endless card games with his friends at Hawthorn Park where he lived for fifteen years.  For the past five years, we had the pleasure of “Papa’s” company and wonderful sense of humour in our home where he enjoyed life and good health until his passing.  Our family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all the staff of 5B at KGH for their kindness and wonderful care.  A memorial service will be held at Hawthorn Park, 867 KLO Road, Kelowna, BC on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 11:00 am to celebrate his life.
