   It is with sadness that we announce the passing of William “Bill” Blanchette of Elkford, BC on August 8, 2023.  He was 73 years of age.

   Bill was a hardworking man whose successful career as an electrician allowed him to be an excellent provider for his family.  In his free-time, and later in retirement, he enjoyed photography and woodworking.  More than anything, Bill cherished time spent with his family - especially his grandchildren.  He was a kind, thoughtful, loyal person who will deeply missed and forever remembered by all who knew him.
