Feb. 9, 1929 – Jul 3, 2008
It is with sadness we announce the passing of William (Bill) Sandulac on July 3, 2008. Bill had stoically battled Parkinson’s Disease for many years, but has now succumbed to the effects of this illness. Bill was born Feb 9, 1929 and was raised in Alberta with 12 brothers and sisters. After marrying Celia in 1953, they spent time in Edmonton and Fort McMurray, and then in 1969, made their way to BC, where they settled in Port Coquitlam to raise their children, Brent and Pam. During this time Bill was a long time employee at the steel foundry ESCO, where he worked as a crane operator. Family was everything to Bill, and his life truly revolved around his children. Whether it was camping at Cultus Lake, travelling to one of Brent’s many hockey tournaments, or coaching Pam’s softball team, Bill could always be found with a smile on his face and a joke on the tip of his tongue. The family joke was that by the time Celia had set up the trailer, Bill knew everyone in the campsite! In 1997, Bill and Celia moved to 100 Mile in anticipation of the birth of their first grandchild. It has been here where he has quietly and happily lived out his days surrounded by his family and great fishing lakes. Bill is predeceased by his cherished son Brent, brothers George, Michael, and John, and sister Pearl. He is survived by his loving wife of 55 years Celia, daughter Pam Easton, son-in-law and fishing buddy, Scott Easton and grandchildren: Megan, Karlie and Adam. He is also survived by sisters: Kate, Betty, Anne, Velma, Sanda, Jean, Helen, and Doris. Our family would like to sincerely thank Dr. Blair Main for his compassionate care of Bill; paramedics: Don, Robin, Darrin, and James; hospital staff and home care nurses: Debbie and Gayle. Also special thanks to the staff of Fischer Place where Bill spent his last six weeks. Your care and compassion has meant so much
to us all and you allowed him to die with peace and dignity – your kindness will not be forgotten. In lieu of flowers, please plant a tree in Bill’s memory.
~ Go on now Bill, Brent is waiting.
The fish are jumping and the rods are all ready.
