William Rudolph (Rudy)

November 26, 1924 – August 20, 2015

The family of William Rudolph (Rudy) Karrer is sad to announce his passing on August 20, 2015. Dad was born November 26, 1924 near Vegreville, Alberta. He moved with his parents at the age of 16 to Penticton to begin fruit farming. He was an orchardist all his life even after “retiring” in his 80s to 4 acres of orchard north of Oliver. He was predeceased by his wife, Elsie (nee Bystrom), and sisters Eda Dagg and Lena Walter. He is survived by his sister Charlein Enns. He is also survived by his children, Bryan and Linda, grandchildren Jacqueline, Susan, Edward, Richard and Kimberley as well as great grandchildren Clorice and Cameron. He was an active part of B.C. Tree Fruits and the Naramata Co-op for many years. When he wasn’t hard at work he enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and just being close to nature. A Celebration of his Life will take place at 1 pm, September 19 at the Shatford Centre for the Arts, 760 Main Street, Penticton B.C.
