It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden loss of Alan Willick, who passed away at the age of 85 on January 21, 2014 in Coldstream B.C. Al was born on the farm near Blain Lake, Saskatchewan on October 18th, 1928, the youngest of 8 children. Alan went to Fort St. James B.C as a young man and worked and raised his family there for 40 years.
He served the community as an Alderman, Volunteer Fire Fighter, Hockey coach and general go to guy to fix anything. Alan and Lil spent their retirement years in Coldstream (near Vernon) loving his garden, woodworking and enjoying family visits.
He is survived by his wife of 60 years Lillian, and a large family of 7 sons, 2 daughters, 16 grand children and 8 great grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister Mary from Bellingham, Washington and many nieces and nephews.
In memory of Alan, a simple act of kindness to others would be appreciated.
