SHPIRUK, William July 22, 1923 - May 13, 2014 Passed away peacefully surrounded by family. William was the devoted husband of Nora; loving father to Susan and Gina; father-in-law to Tom and Paul; grandfather to Brittany, Jaryd, Aaron and Aisha; great-grandfather to Londyn. Born in Poland, William emigrated to Canada at the age of 7 with his mother, Polly and sister, Mary to join their father, Naum, who had previously come to Manitoba, Canada. Three more siblings, Stephen, Nettie and Frank were born in Canada. In 1942, he joined the Navy and served Canada until 1945. He settled on Vancouver Island where he met Nora (married 67 years) and together raised their family. He started a painting apprenticeship with the Provincial Government where he became foreman and worked for 35 years. He spent many years of his retirement travelling with Nora, visiting friends and family and enjoying playing golf. He will be sadly missed and forever in our hearts. Love you always dad!
