With sadness in our hearts we announce the passing of William (Bill) Matichuk. Bill was born on September 1, 1941 in Vegreville, AB to Fred and Pearl Matichuk.
On February 24, 2018, he passed away peacefully at Central Okanagan Hospice House surrounded by family.

Bill is survived by his loving wife of 50 years Brenda; sons: Grant (Denise) and Kelsey (Lorna); grandchildren: Brooklyn (Dustin), Gavin and Meaghan; great grandson Linkin; and nephew Dwayne.
Bill moved his family to Kelowna in 1977 where he began his entrepreneurship with Tidy Car. In 1982 he added to his business when he founded The Battery Doctors. He continued to expand, eventually becoming a major recycling facility including the transporting of batteries, electronics, paint and hazardous waste. He worked closely with the Provincial Stewardship Programs and the Central Okanagan Regional District.
Bill enjoyed spending time in his yard and swimming in his pool at home. He also enjoyed traveling to warm destinations, especially vacations to Mexico with his family.
