It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Bill Lang on December 6, 2015 at 63 years of age. He is survived by his brother Pat (Brenda) and his sister Maureen (Vince), nieces Katelyn (Dustin) and Hailey, nephew James, great nephews Austin and Carter along with numerous aunts, cousins and friends.
He was predeceased by his mother Jean, father Jim, half-brother Ken and nephew Matthew.
Bill was born in Edmonton January 23, 1952. He moved to Kamloops in 1957. School was always easy for Bill; skipping grades enabled him to attend S.A.I.T. at the age of 16. He then went to BCIT for four years and completed his degree as a Metallurgical Technician. He worked for many years at Highland Valley Copper (Lornex) and he stayed working in the mining industry until his retirement in early 2015.
Bills’ love for music and his happy demeanour left him with many friends throughout his life.
A celebration of life will take place in the spring or summer of 2016. The family wishes to give a special thanks to Barb and Jerry for their kindness, support and love.
Memorial donations may be made in Bill’s name to the Canadian Cancer Society 214-141 Victoria Street, Kamloops, BC V2C 1Z5
We’ll miss you. Rock on Bad Billy Beer Can.
