Relation: Family Friends

Our deepest condolences to the Billy Kuryliw family. We all rode the school bus together many years ago. It was always a humorous experience meeting up with him while he lived in Lac La Biche and later back in Vilna. May he Rest In Peace.

From: Shirley Dacyk

Condolences to Mrs. Kuryliw and all her family. How quickly time passes by. Rest in peace Billy.

From: Mona (DeBron) Moffat
Relation: Cousin

I will always remember you as my cool cousin with the red Firebird. Your motorcycle trips to our place in Vancouver for coffee. And your incredible sense of humour with your quit wit.
To Aunt Kathleen, Marlaine, Roseanne and your families my condolences! Billy was one of a kind.
