Winard “Wynn” Kline
We regret to advise of the death of Winard “Wynn” Kline peacefully at the Bethany Care Centre in Cochrane, Alberta on 25 October 2015. Born in 1921 in Big Valley, AB, he left a drafting program at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology to join the Royal Canadian Engineers and served in WW II from 1940 - 1945.
After the war Wynn began his career in the appliance industry and later, in partnership with his brother Jack and two friends, founded a successful commercial appliance business that served all of Alberta. Wynn frequently shared his detailed recollection of the wartime sapper work that he was engaged in and had particular recollections of the several war-orphans that he and his colleagues looked after for different periods during the war. Service to others and the nurturing of friendships were the central themes of Wynn's life.
A celebration of Wynn's life will be held at McInnis & Holloway (Crowfoot, 82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.), on Sunday, 1 November 2015 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Bethany Care Society (Cochrane Care Centre) Telephone: 403-210-4665 www.bethanyseniors.com or to the Poppy Fund, #1, 4539 – 6th Street N.E., Calgary, AB T2E 3Z6, Telephone: (403) 265-6304. In living memory of Wynn Kline, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park.
