In Loving Memory Of
William George Zahara
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of William George Zahara. William was a resident of Grande Prairie, formerly of Rycroft, and he passed away on Monday, June 24, 2019, at Prairie Lakes Seniors’ Community, at the age of 95 years.
Willie was born August 22, 1923 in Fort Frances, ON. He moved to Rycroft as a young child and grew up on the farm two miles south of Rycroft. He married Della Craig on December 18, 1948. They raised their five children on the farm before retiring to Rycroft in 1990.
Willie was active as a young man and especially enjoyed playing ball. He continued with his love of sports by coaching his own boys and watching his grandchildren play ball and hockey. He was very active in the Merry Pioneers. He loved playing crib and won many prizes doing so with Anne Kotyk in the Seniors Games and Rycroft Frolic.
He worked towards making Rycroft a better community by volunteering on many boards and groups.
