Bernard (Bernie) William Price
March 14, 1956 – October 22, 2017
It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Bernard (Bernie) William Price of West Kelowna, British Columbia, on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at the young age of 61.
Born on March 14, 1956 in Princeton, British Columbia, Bernie was by all accounts the most loving, joyful and compassionate person this world has ever known. His family was his life. His second love was running equipment and spending nearly 10 years at Syncrude in Fort McMurray were some of his fondest years.
Best known for his incredibly infectious laugh, his favourite pastime was spending time with his family. Whether telling stories, taking in a round golf, having the grandkids over during the summer or just going on a Sunday afternoon motorcycle ride with his love, Leanne. This is where he found the most joy.
Predeceased by his parents Leonard and Anna, Bernie is survived by his loving wife, Leanne Crompton, sons Brad (Kristy, Carissa, Aidan), Kelby (Amanda, Madelyn), Jamin (Devin), Kenton (Michael), daughter Jessica (Tom, Sloan), brother Tom (Yvonne, Clayton, Falon, Nadine), the mother of his boys Bev (Wayne), special family members Aunt Judy and Uncle Wayne, a large extended family and countless dear friends.
Bernie’s death will leave a major hole in our family. He will be forever missed.
“He was always proud of what he had. He said, his greatest contribution is the ones you leave behind.”
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations are made in Bernie’s name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
A celebration of Bernie’s life will be held at Shannon Lake Golf Club in West Kelowna on Saturday, November 25, 2017, starting at 2 pm.
