Obituary for William "Bill" Riach

William "Bill"  Riach
William (Bill) Ross Riach
June 21, 1926 – December 20, 2017
Bill passed away gently at the Nokomis Health Centre early Wednesday, December 20 with his beloved son watching over him. He was predeceased by parents, Bill and Dorothy Riach, and in-laws Bill and Dorothy Howat, siblings Connie, Ron, Doug, Stuart, Ian and Dorothy, his brothers-in-law Les Fletcher, Bill Swartz and Geoff Duddridge, sisters-in-law Marj and Claire, and grand daughter Bree Skylar Riach. Bill is survived by Doreen, his loving wife of 57 years, son Bill Jr (Trudi) and much loved daughter Bonnie (Mike) Hansen, Brant AB, grandchildren Chris Hansen (Mel), Ottawa, Cody Hansen (Tegan), Edmonton, and Hayli Riach, U of S. He is also survived by sister Phyllis Duddridge, Victoria, sister-in-law Eleanor Riach, Raymore, and 5 brothers in-laws, Frank Mertton, and Bob, Gordon, Jack, and Don Howat and many loving nieces, nephews and friends. Bill was born on the family farm SW 6-30-20 near Tate. Bill was a veteran, a RCMP member, school bus driver, but for most of his life he happily farmed east of Nokomis. Bill was an Eastern Star, Mason and Shriner member. He was a very active Legion member acting as President many times, and Zone Commander for 2 terms. He was blessed to be able to attend church with many friends almost every Sunday. Bill loved to social dance (Danceland), square dance, play cards (canasta and crib), watch his family’s sports events but most of all he loved to travel. Bill will be remembered as a hard-working, good host, kind, generous, polite, friendly person who loved people. We will all miss him greatly. A memorial service will be held in the late spring, 2018. For anyone wishing to make a donation, Christ Church Nokomis Memorial Fund, Box 267, Nokomis, SK S0G 3R0, or Nokomis Legion, Box 159, Nokomis, Sask S0G 3R0 would be appreciated.
