Summary
In 1928, as an eager 18 year old, Bill boarded the Empress of France and headed to Canada with $5, a Grade 3 education, and a powerful zest for life. For more than 60 years, he lived in Sudbury, Ontario and was an active, dedicated, and involved citizen, known by those in the Ukrainian community, by politicians, and business people for his energy, commitment, and generosity. He was a man of diverse interests and abilities. He is also remembered as being an admirer of the works of writer and poet Ivan Franko, and known for his recitation of Franko's poems.  Despite many challenges, Wasyl (Bill) Kuryliw chose to lead a life with optimism, charity, and love.
