It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of William (Bill) Charles McCallum of Kamloops, B.C., on May 29, 2014, at 70 years of age.
Bill is survived by his loving wife Monique McCallum, children Steve McCallum of Kamloops, B.C., and Johanne (Brad) MacLaren of Barriere, B.C. Also left to cherish Bill’s memory are grandchildren Layton, Faunne, Cora and Wyatt MacLaren; great-grandchildren Nevaeh Eileen MacLaren, as well as sister Judy Odynsky. Bill is predeceased by his sister Barb Dehnke, and nephew Danny Dehnke of Valemount, B.C.
Bill was born and lived in Kamloops most of his life. He could often be found at the local pool halls or the horse racing grounds. He shared a passion of fishing with his son, Steve, and gardening with his daughter Johanne. Bill was his grandchildrens’ biggest fan in their sport activities; he rarely missed a game.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Bill’s memory may be made to the Kamloops Hospice.
A Celebration of Life for Bill will be held on Saturday, June 7, 2014, at 2:00 p.m., in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel with Chaplain Mary Widmer officiating.
