April 9, 1929 – Jan. 3, 2015
Bill passed away on Jan. 3, 2015 of cancer in 100 Mile Hospital.
Calgary and the surrounding area was Bill’s home until early adulthood. He moved to Hope, then Aldergrove and finally to 100 Mile House where he enjoyed nature, home and married life.
Bill worked from the age of 10, when his father died, and continued working until he retired at the age of 80. He started with odd jobs: ranch work, delivering telegrams and milk by horse and stonebolt. He moved on to mining, lumber camps, laying railroad, even a little rodeo-ing. His real love was long-haul trucking. Moving oil rigs in Alberta, heavy equipment, house logs and hay to BC and Alberta ranchers making many friends along the way. After retiring he continued working by logging our property, general building and upkeep. He was never still. Bill was known for his honesty, hard work, willingness to help others, love of a good laugh, his crooked grin and the twinkle in his eye.
Bill is survived by his loving wife Laurel, daughters Theresa and Renee and sons Jeff and Trevor. He leaves many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family.
He was predeceased by his first wife Carol of 50 years and sons Billy and Dale.
Bill will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by many.
