On Sunday, December 31, 2017 Mr. Wilfred “Reg” Bishop of Kamloops passed away peacefully at the age of 91 years.

Reg was born on July 29, 1926 in Turtleford, Saskatchewan. He served in WWII and in 1949, married Margaret in Victoria. He spent the majority of his working life in saw mills. This path took him to the Cariboo, where they resided in Lone Butte for some 35 years, before moving to Chase for 16 years, and then he moved into Kamloops.
A remembrance tea was held on Saturday, January 6, 2018 at 2:30 p.m. at Kamloops Seniors Village in the multi-purpose room.
