Willy Galka


1935 – 2013

With sadness I announce the

passing of Willy Galka on April

23, 2013 at age 77. He leaves

his loving wife Renate to whom

he was married 48 years.

Also surviving are his Brothers Manfred, Edmonton, Alfred and Ehrenfried both of Berlin Germany, and a Sister Hiltraut in Australia.

Willy was born in Berlin Germany on June 18, 1935 and immigrated to Canada in 1960 where he met Renate. Willy worked for the Dana Canada Corporation in Ontario for 32 years.

Upon retirement 12 years ago Willy and Renate moved

to West Kelowna. He then became very active with the West Kelowna Community Policing Society as a Volunteer. He was a very dedicated Volunteer and enjoyed the

people he worked with.

Willy was a devoted and loving husband to Renate and

was the type of person who was always there for you if you needed help. He was kind, unselfish and always put the needs of other people ahead of himself.

The last few years were difficult for Willy and Renate and

we thank the Cancer Clinic, Kelowna General Hospital

and the Hospice House as well as all of the Staff in these Organizations.

Renate will host a Celebration of Willy’s Life in June at her home.

Funeral arrangements by First Memorial Funeral Home,

Kelowna and will be followed by Cremation.

Renate would like to offer a Special Thank You to all of

her friends and neighbors who were there for support. “Thank you, I will never forget.”

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
