He was predeceased by parents, Ervin (Pat) and Glory Russell; brother, Gordon; and sisters-in-law, Lois (Reynolds) Snyder and Marie (Innis) Russell. Bill’s first priority was always his family. Bev was his soul mate, his best friend and his biggest supporter. He always attended the school programs, recitals, sports events, etc. of his children and grandchildren. Bill loved to just spend time with family and was so proud of each of their achievements. He was an electrical contractor in business for 43 years in Melita, Manitoba and Southeastern Saskatchewan, until his retirement. Church and community involvement through many organizations kept Bill very busy along with operating the business. When he retired in 1995, Bill and Bev began spending winters in Kelowna and permanently retired to that beautiful city in 2001. He carried on his volunteering at church, in the neighborhood and community. Bill helped to build his son and daughter-in-law’s home in Peachland four years ago. He learned to swim at age 70 and went for a hot-air balloon ride at 80. He never lost his curiosity as to how things worked. Bill always needed to be busy and we are happy he was able to do all the things he loved to do until the end. We loved him and will miss him.
