William (Bill) Pryma, a cherished soul known for finding joy in life's simple pleasures, passed away on April 15, 2024, at the age of 92.

Bill was more than a dedicated cribbage player, ACT member, stained glass artist, and ukulele strummer; he was a compassionate man who volunteered tirelessly and nurtured his beloved garden with a green thumb, cultivating vegetables and flowers alike.

Predeceased by his beloved wife Joan, Bill peacefully departed in his sleep, leaving behind a legacy of kindness and passion.

His love and importance for his family and friends were paramount in his life, and he will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

As per Bill’s wishes cremation has already taken place and there will be no service.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Camp He Ho Ha on behalf of ACT, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, or Colorectal Cancer Canada.

  1. I express my deepest sympathy in this time of great sorrow. I would like to share the comforting hope the Bible gives that your loved one will live again on a beautiful earth when there will be no more death in John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4.

  2. Uncle Bill was always a pleasure to be around. Great sense of humour and wit. So sorry he had to leave us. We’ll keep him forever in our memories.

  3. So sad to hear of Bill’s passing. Working at Meadowlark Safeway will never be the same for me with no more of his smiles and visits. Every year he’d bring me “dill seed”, including one time in an old M.J.D. coffee can. I finally had to break it to him that sadly I was the only Ukrainian woman that couldn’t grow dill. He laughed and said, it’s a weed. You can’t grow a weed? I wished I would’ve seen him play his ukelele, for he was proud, but modest. I hope you get showered with cookies up there and I know your wife welcomed you with her big smile. My condolences to his family and thank you for letting him be a part of my life. Until we meet again…you friendship will always be cherished.

  4. Jim, Dan, Steve and families,

    We were saddened to hear that Uncle Bill passed away. A wonderful person who had a positive impact on so many people’s lives. He was genuine. His smile would ease into that curved lip chuckle, a silent way of showing us his love.

    Uncle Bill left quietly, his thoughts unknown, he left us all with memories that will remain tucked in a corner of our heart. He will be missed. He is missed.

    There are no words that can truly ease the pain of a sudden loss, but if caring thoughts can help, they are with all of you right now. Sending our deepest condolences and warm hugs during this heartbreaking time.
