William Henry Killick

January 16, 1927 ~ April 11, 2013

Harry Killick was born in Middlesbrough, England. He and his parents and sister emigrated to Canada after WWII. Harry started his photography career in Penticton before opening his own studio in Summerland and winning honorable mention in a Brussels photo show. He went on to become the Handy Dart driver in Summerland for some years. Motorcycling played a large part in his life, starting riding as a young man in England and into his late 70’s. His greatest gift, though, was music. Through the early years in the Summerland town band, various dance bands, and performing up until the end as timpanist with the Penticton Concert Band and singing with the Tune Agers. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Velma; his sister Margaret (Peter); children Joyce, Bill (Debbie) and Pete (Lynn); grandchildren Ryan, Christine (Cam), and Katie; and great grandson Jordan. His wicked sense of humour and quiet love and strength will be greatly missed. A Celebration of Harry’s Life will be held on Saturday, April 27th, 2013 at 2:00 PM from Providence’s Summerland Chapel, 13205 Rosedale Avenue, Summerland, BC. Donations in Harry’s honour may be forwarded to Peter Killick, Box 1842, Summerland, BC V0H 1Z0 to create a bursary for a Summerland Music Student.
