It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Arthur (Art) Zilkie on August 09, 2013 at the age of 96. Arthur was born in Ridgeville, Manitoba on Dec 30, 1916. Left to cherish his memory are his son Barry, his sister Eleanor, his daughter-in-law Elizabeth (Liz), many nieces, nephews and friends.
Arthur lead an active joyful life and passed his exuberance onto everyone he met. Sports were his passion. He loved curling; golfing with his friends at Sumac Ridge, watching hockey with a close friend or discussing the latest baseball scores with whomever would listen.
Arthur was pre-deceased by his wife Anne. Together they enjoyed life, gardening, golfing, camping, and travelling to Arizona for winter vacations.
A celebration of Arthur’s life will held at Providence’s Summerland Chapel, 13205 Rosedale Ave. Summerland BC, on Saturday Aug 31, 2013 at 10:30AM. Condolences may be directed to the family through providencefuneralhomes.com
