Wasyl Alfred Stadnyk {Bill} aged 79, passed away at his home in Cache Creek, BC on Sat., July 14, 2012. Bill was born at home near Canora, Sask. on Sept 21, 1932.

He was predeceased by his parents, Nickolas and Sandy and his wife, Martha. Bill leaves behind his sister, Jean Kissick of Edmonton, his Daughter, Dianne {Mike} Golinski of Salmon Arm, BC, his granddaughters Marcia and Melissa {Karl}, many nieces and  one nephew, as well as his special friends Joan and Angela and so many other very good friends.

Bill was passionate about his accordions and at the time of his passing owned more than 135. He played them, repaired them, collected them, displayed them and just would talk to anyone about them. He knew the story and worth of each one. Of course to keep up with this hobby he did have to go to the casino in Kamloops on Saturdays.

He was a good person who hated conflict and would just walk away. He spoke with his sister every morning at 6:30 am and often in the afternoon. The discussions were many and varied. Bill was capable of repairing nearly anything that was broken and was always helping people out.

The memorial service was held for Bill at Chum’s in Cache Creek on Sat, July 21, 2012, 3:00 p.m. where he spent so much time visiting, drinking coffee, fixing stuff and just being Bill to everyone.

Fischer’s Funeral Services of Salmon Arm and Thompson Valley funeral home of Ashcroft handled the arrangements and cremation. Donations to the heart and stroke fund would be appreciated as both Bill and Martha passed away from stroke or cardiac problems.
