William Bill George Kardos

Date of Death: September 10, 2018


William George Kardos

William (Bill) George Kardos was born on a farm near Wakaw Saskatchewan on January 28, 1927, to Imre and Rosalia Kardos. He was the youngest of five children, Marie, Martin, Helena, and Elizabeth. When he was 11 the family, minus his father, moved to BC. They first settled near Wynndel, close to the Popovich farm where he met the future love of his life Anne. At 14 he dropped out of school to support himself. He spent time ranching near Calgary, mining at Sudbury, and logging near Creston before joining CPR for a 44 year career. In 1952 he married Anne Popovich.

He was active in the community and the church throughout his years and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone who need help. His generosity and love extended beyond his family. Bill has no surviving siblings. His wife Anne predeceased him in 2000. Bill is survived by his children, Cheryl (Larry, Melanie, Kimberly), Kevin, Mark, Gail, Gwen (Harold, Aysza, Harrison), Allison (Randy, Taya, Aliyah), and Tamara (Warren, Bryce, Ethen).

From: Dana Atagi
Relation: I worked with Bill at CPR, a long time ago!

Bill and my Dad IYute) worked together at CP Rail. They were career B&B men. Bill took me under his wing when I was a summer student back in the mid-1980s working on his B&B gang. He was a kind and gentle man who kept me out of trouble and made sure I got to work on time. I have nothing but fond memories of those summer jobs with your Dad. Dana
