(1926 – 2015)
lt is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of our dad, Bill Munro, at the age of 89. Bill resided in Ashcroft for the past 61 years. Before passing, Bill forged an 89 year trail of laughter, generosity, compassion, and wisdom. He will be greatly missed by his children Jim (Marianne), Don, Karen (Kevin),
Craig (Marnie), Pam (Andrew), thirteen grandchildren, brother Joe and sister Shirley. Dad passed away peacefully at his home in Ashcroft surrounded by his family on December 12, 2015. He was predeceased by parents James and Lucinda, wives Helen and Bea, dear friend Georgette Bewza, sisters Dorrine and Audrey, and brother Gordie. Also mourning his loss are long-time friends and neighbours Joanne Kane and Jack Kirkpatrick.
Dad had many hobbies including cooking, gardening, sending daily joke emails to family and friends, and buying exercise equipment. He was an avid gardener and was known for growing amazing fruits and vegetables, many of which he donated to the local food bank. He always had a kind heart for others and his house was a second home to many of the neighbourhood kids. Bill could often be found playing cards with his long-time friends in the neighbourhood card club, working in his garden, or feeding and looking after orphaned or injured wildlife.
We would like to extend our most sincere thanks to the Nishiguchi family, good friends Jim and Judy Bergen, and community nurses Juanita and Diane.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to his favourite charity, BC Children’s Hospital- http://vvvvvv.bcchildrens.ca/donate. As requested by Bill, there will be no funeral or service. Online condolences may be made at vvwvv.tvfh.ca.
