GRINWIS, Wilhelm Krijn (Bill)

It is with heavy hearts the family of Bill Grinwis announce his passing on April 20, 2010 at the age of 81. He is sadly missed by his wife of 31 years Gayle Starr, children Kryn (Kathy), Janice, Leah, Robert and many grandchildren. He also leaves behind family in the Netherlands, South Africa and Eastern Canada, and many dear friends across the country. Bill was born in the Netherlands. He settled on the West Coast in the late 40’s and became a long haul truck driver so he could see the world and feel the open road.

Bill will always be remembered for his fun loving and charismatic style.

On Saturday, May 22, 2010 we will be having a celebration of his life at the house from1-4 pm contact Gayle at
