Bill Postnikoff

It is with great sadness to announce the sudden passing of Bill Postnikoff of Fruitvale on Sunday April 27, 2014 at his home in Marsh Creek with his family by his side.

Bill was predeceased by his parents Alec and Nora and brothers Walter and Harry.

Bill is survived by his loving wife Nancy, children Billy, Cyril and Theresa (Kyle), sister-in-law Kathy, and many cousins, nephews, nieces, family and friends.

Bill was born and raised in Champion Creek, BC where he spent many of his days with his brothers and cousins who were more like his brothers and sisters. Bill in his younger years enjoyed fishing, hunting, picking huckleberries and spent many hours playing hockey. Bill met his loving wife Nancy in 1979 and married her in 1980. They moved to Blueberry and finally relocated to Fruitvale in 1983 where their three beautiful children were raised. Bill worked in construction all his life and was a proud member of CSWU 1611.

One of his great passions was getting all the family children and friends together and spending afternoons at Champion Lakes. Bill loved his home and throughout the summer months could be seen putting around and beautifying his yard and keeping his grass green. Heaven forbid anyone touch his sprinklers! His love was his wife, that he cherished beyond means, his children and being at home with family and friends. He never had a mean thing to say about anyone and was always welcoming you into his home.

Bill’s famous last words were “See You again My Friend” And we will see you again our Friend!!

A funeral service will be held at Gateway Christian Life Centre on Friday May 2, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. The service will be officiated by Major Samuel Fame.
