Bill was born in Glade, BC, on May 05, 1938 to Dora and Alex Sapriken. After a short battle against cancer, he passed away peacefully on June 05, 2015,
with family by his side.
He was predeceased by his mother Dora, father Alex and two brothers Norman and George. Left to mourn Bill’s loss is his daughter Lube Sapriken, son Russell Sapriken and many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.
Bill worked for the CPR and retired at an early enough age to enjoy life. He was known for his many day trips to the Okanagan and his daily, multiple trips to Tim Hortons where he would relax in his lawn chair and people watch. His favourite past time though was fishing.
Bill was a kind man, and a man of few words, but he got along with and was liked by many. He will be greatly missed.
A big thank you to Dr. Kyle Merritt for his kind care, to Rhianna and Jackie from Home Care, and to Bill from the Castlegar Funeral Chapel, as well to all those who have shared their kind words and prayers.
Cremation has taken place and a memorial will take place at a later date.
