Bill RHODES

Bill Rhodes

May 5, 1946 – November 8, 2015

Bill passed in his sleep early Sunday with his wife Barbara by his side in his home on Morningside Road.

Bill will be remembered for his off the wall sense of humour and jokes, his kindness, generosity and his trust in all people he encountered.

Bill was born in Calgary and attended The Alberta College of Art while working as a Calgary firefighter.

He bought the fire hall in Fulford Harbour in 1982 and recreated it many times over. As an artist his creations took different forms, glass fusing sandblasting, custom tiles, ceramics and sculpting in paper maché for which he won countless awards and recognition. He loved his life and friends in Mexico where he could create in a tropical paradise.

Bill will remain in the hearts and memories of his family and friends who loved him.

A special thanks to those who made it possible for him to stay at home till the end, home care nurses, hospice, Red Cross, Beacon Community Services, and his Doctor Kalf.

Celebrations of life will be held in Mexico this winter and on Salt Spring this spring.
