December 26, 1934 – May 1, 2013
It is with great sadness to announce the passing of our beloved William (Bill) on May 1, 2013 at the age of 78 in the Chilliwack General Hospital.
He was a loving husband of 2 children and 2 grandchildren. He farmed near MacGregor razing cattle and mixed grain, and was a municipal councilor for many years.
Bill retired and moved to Chilliwack, B.C. 17 years ago from Manitoba to be with this soul mate and partner.
He enjoyed cribbage, dancing, gardening, and playing bingo. Bill also enjoyed driving his lawn mower, maintaining his yard, relaxing with his old cat “Toby”, and going for drives in his truck.
In September of 2011, he was diagnosed with kidney disease and congested heart failure, although he fought a courageous battle, he is now at peace.
Special thanks to all the Drs and nurses at the Renal Clinic in Abbotsford, and the Abbotsford and Chilliwack Hospital staff.
A celebration of Bill’s life will be held at Bill’s residence on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at 2:00pm, all who knew are him welcome.
It friends so desire, donations may be made to the Kidney Foundation of Canada or the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
