William (Bill) Brock (1952 to 2020)

William (Bill) Brock of Whitecroft, BC was born on January 29th, 1952 in Carlisle, UK. He passed away suddenly on January 20th, 2020. He is survived by his loving wife Avril, his sons Sean, Paul and stepdaughter Sam, his grandchildren Cameron,  Joseph, Sophie, Ella and Emily, his brother Norman and sisters Joyce, Pat and Helen.

Bill worked in the North East, Leicestershire and Derbyshire Mental Health Services and in Kamloops at Hillside Centre.

He was an amazing psychiatric nurse,  mentor and manager. Advocating for his patients was top priority for him.  Over the years he has helped many, many patients with mental health illnesses. 

Bill was a phenomenal husband,  father and stepfather and the most special Grandad to our wonderful grandchildren.  Bill touched everyone he met with his gentleness, kindness, graciousness, selflessness, charm, humour and love. He will be loved and remembered forever.

A service will take place Tuesday, January 28th, 2020 at Our Lady of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church at 2573 Todd Mountain Road, to be followed by a reception at the Sun Peaks Grand.

Avril would like to give special thanks to the communities of Whitecroft and Sun Peaks for their love and support.
