March 31, 1932 – April 11, 2015
Husband, Father, Grandfather, Uncle
It is with great sadness today that we announce Bill’s passing on Saturday, April 11, 2015.
Bill was born in Winnipeg, MB and then as a young man, moved to Victoria, BC where he began working in the logging industry. He later moved to Vancouver where he worked on the weather ships which was followed by several years at the plywood plant.
In 1972, Bill fulfilled his life long dream and moved to the Cariboo with his beautiful wife Mary and their 10-year-old son, Jason. Bill was a superb craftsman and had an acute eye for detail. With these skills and with the help of his wife and son, Bill built their dream house, a beautiful family log home where he and Mary continued to live together up until his passing.
Bill was an avid hunter and fisherman and his ‘Happy Place’ was to always be out in the great outdoors. He spent as much time there as possible camping, fishing and hunting. He passed his love of nature onto his only son and together, as a family, they enjoyed countless outings & adventures.
Bill is survived by his loving wife Mary of 58 years, son Jason (Deb), grandchildren Ryan (Aja), Emma (Jimmy), niece Marci (Alwyn) and nephew Rick (Shannon) along with numerous others. He was predeceased by his 5 siblings.
There will be a gathering of family and friends to honour Bill’s life at the end of April.
“Two Finger Salute Dad… until we meet again”
May you forever be at peace!
