The Story

Tragically, on February 7 2016, William "Bill" Sikora passed away leaving behind his wife Caitlin.

Originally from New Jersey, Bill moved to Canada to make a life together with Caitlin. Their home was always open to friends and their genuine warmth and hospitality was evident, as was their love for each other.

Bill was in the middle of the application process for Canadian residency and the majority of Bill and Caitlin's life savings went towards the associated costs. During this time Bill was not allowed to work and so they had to make ends meet with a single paycheque.

As some of you may know the costs surrounding funerals are substantial and we would like to come together as the friends and family of Bill and Caitlin to help cover the cost of his memorial service and his final home here in Winnipeg. The goal set in this fundraiser is the real cost of the service honouring Bill and giving him a final home. As we get closer to our goal we will update you here to let you know how any surplus funds will be used. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me. We aim to be fully transparent in this process.
