It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Bill W. Plotnikoff at Talarico Place on July 30, 2020. Bill passed away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 87 years.
Bill was born on August 4, 1932 at Gibson Creek, BC to parents Bill and Mary Plotnikoff.
Bill lived all his life in Castlegar but his work required him to travel to various areas of the province. Teamster Bill worked on various construction projects throughout the province, usually in supervisory capacity, including the Hi Arrow, Revelstoke, Mica Creek and Duncan dams and the Kootenay Canal. Bill was also an avid camper as he and his wife, Mary, along with all their friends from the Good Sam club, would travel to various areas of the province and south of the border.
Bill was predeceased by his wife, Mary, of 58 years in 2017 and is survived by his children Lorne (Lynn), Debby, and George (Lydia) and his sisters Olga (George), Larissa, and Vera and his many nieces, nephews, and grandchildren.
Thank you to Dr. Vasil and the nursing staff at Talarico Place for their compassionate care of Bill and to Bill Strilaeff and staff at the Castlegar Funeral Chapel for their assistance.
Cremation followed and a private graveside service will be held at a later date.Print Obituary & Condolences
