Albert Billie Chapman DeWaine

January 1, 1926 – December 31, 2016

Our loving Dad, Grandpa and Great Grandpa peacefully joined his late wife Louise, 12 hours before his 91st Birthday. He leaves behind daughters Wendy, Maggie and Cindy (John) and son Cal (Anita) as well as grandson Chris, granddaughters Alysha (Rory), Hannah (Phil) and also great grandchildren Brayden and Elsie.

Bill was born and raised in Vancouver but spent the last 25 years living in Penticton to be close to his grandchildren. He was a proud Naval Veteran and served overseas during the war. He loved his jobs, first as a Letter Carrier and then as a Supervisor with the Post Office. He and Louise were avid bowlers and they traveled a lot to tournaments along with many friends. He had a great sense of humour, and being a New Years’ baby was always one of his favorite roles at parties.

Many thanks to all the staff at The Hamlets in Penticton for the exceptional care they gave him. Bill wished to be cremated and there will be no service by request.
