Anthony William (Bill) Binfet passed into the Lord’s care on Saturday, September 11, 2021, at the age of 79 in Penticton, British Columbia. Born on September 15th, 1941, in Regina, Saskatchewan, Bill was a larger-than-life personality who was defined by his compassion, enthusiasm, and irrepressible humour. His laughter and selfless energy will continue to resonate and comfort us as we learn to accept the loss of this truly incomparable husband, father, and brother. Bill leaves behind his wife and true love, Beverley (nee Carnation), his daughter, Paula Knetsch (Warren), and his son James (Faye). One of six children, Bill is predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Mae Binfet, his son, John, his daughter, Nicole, and his brother, Gordon. He will be missed by his sisters, Eileen (Greg), Jo, and Gina and his brother, Bob (Mae).
Bill grew up in Saskatchewan and Jasper, Alberta. He graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Science Degree. In 1965, he and Beverley were married in Regina, and through the years lived in Montreal, Winnipeg, Penticton, Victoria, St. Albert and Kelowna; ultimately settling and retiring from his notary practice back in Penticton. Throughout his life, Bill has been an ardent supporter of education, having served on the Penticton School Board and the board of Okanagan College. He was always guided by his faith and enjoyed the community of his church and serving on the Parish Council. He was a peerless Notary Public, a dedicated volunteer with the RCMP Auxiliary and a proud Rotarian.
But most of all, Bill was a genuinely loving and kind person who never failed to faithfully support his family and friends and serve his community with passion and dedication. A remembrance ceremony will be held on Saturday, September 18, 2021, at 11:00 am. It will be held at St. Ann’s Church, 1296 Main Street, Penticton, B.C. In lieu of flowers, we ask that a donation in Bill’s name be made to the B.C. Cancer Foundation.
For those unable to attend the service, please join us via zoom.
