CHINKIWSKY, William "Bill"
May 17, 1925 – March 20, 2017
Passed away very peacefully, surrounded by his family. Survived by his loving wife of 70 wonderful years, Betty Eleanor Chinkiwsky (nee Ritchie), his children, Robin (Karen), Mark, Debbie (late Claude) and Randy (Sue), his grandchildren, Paula, Nick (Rachel), Lysa (Steph), Matt, Kat (Aidan), Cory (Jordie), Chris, James (Darian) and Andrew, and his two great-grandchildren, Frances and Leo. Also survived by his two sisters Mary Zuccala (Ray) and Anne Dawe (late Harding), brother Michael (Joan) and by many nieces and nephews (late Michael). Predeceased by his brother, Jack. Bill greatly loved his wife, Betty, and his family, and he was very loved in return. He was a warm, gregarious and generous person. For over 45 years, he was a grocer on Preston Street, first taking over his father's corner store, Carling Groceteria, then becoming owner of Bill's IGA (and Canterbury IGA). Here, his big personality shone, walking up and down the aisles, with bubble gum in his pockets for his younger customers and friendly greetings for the rest. Bill and Betty often had parties and large family gatherings at their home, from New Year's Eve parties and Ukrainian Christmas Eve celebrations to summer pool parties. All were always welcomed and well fed. We would like to thank the staff at Forest Hill for their loving care of William over the past six months, and the staff and residents of The Ravines for their kindness over the six years that it was his home. There will be a celebration of William's life on Saturday, April 1 at 2 p.m. at Kanata Golf & Country Club, 7000 Campeau Drive, Kanata. All are welcome.
Rodney Carl Zaine, born in Ottawa on May 18, 1946, passed peacefully on July 7, 2022. Son of Veronica (McGoff) and Nick Zaine. Survived by his sister Bev and brother Rick. Proud father of Tony (Kristen), Andrew (Lisa), Amy, Jessie and Emily (Arthur). He will be dearly missed by his grandchildren Nicholas, A.J., Bradley and Reid as well as niece Tracey (Pierre) and great-nieces Katlyn, Jenna, Makayla and Madison.
Affectionately known to his children, grandchildren, nieces, great-nieces and all of their friends as "Rod Old Buddy", Rod was a lover of hockey and baseball. He was a charismatic, generous to a fault funny man with an endless number of jokes, anecdotes and stories that he would tell to captivate audiences. A local sports legend, Rod was always on the go, walking and biking farther than most of us can drive. When not enriching the lives of his family, friends and anyone in need he would settle in for some of his favorite past times, cribbage, euchre, crosswords, reading and watching Seinfeld.
A visitation will be held Friday, July 15, 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Kelly Funeral Home - Barrhaven Chapel (3000 Woodroffe Ave, Nepean, 613-823-4747). The family invites you to a Celebration of Life on Saturday, July 16, 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre in Ottawa, 102 Greenview Ave.
Thank you to the dedicated and caring staff at the Queensway Carleton Hospital.
