On September 6, 2015 William (Bill) James Meneer passed away peacefully in Nakusp, B.C. as a result of complications with diabetes. Bill was born in 1953 in Trail where he lived until 1973 when he left to attend BCIT where he trained as a chef. He returned to live in Rossland in the early 1980s where he met and married Marsha Stewart who predeceased him in 1999. Since 1992 he has resided in Nakusp where he practiced his cooking talents in many of the local restaurants. His lovely yard and garden at his house in Nakusp was evidence of his love of gardening. Bill was a loving husband, son, brother, uncle and friend to many. He will be sadly missed by his family – stepmother, Doreen Meneer, sister, Leigh Meneer Howard (Abbotsford), nephew, Evan Howard (Melbourne, Australia) and niece, Kelly Howard (Melbourne, Australia).
A special thank you for the excellent care that was given to Bill in the Arrow Lakes Hospital. In Bill’s final hours of life he was given comfort and was treated with great dignity by the emergency paramedics, nurses, care aids and doctors. The care could not have been better.
Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Valley Funeral Home.
