Bill will be sadly missed by his wife, Diana and son, D’Arcy. He also leaves behind his brothers, Jim (Tina), Tom (Louise) and sister, Ellen. Bill finished his civil engineering degree at the age of 21 at the University of Alberta and after a few years of working for Shell in Ontario, he returned to the U.of A. to study law. He spent a number of years in practice with the law firm Duncan Craig in Edmonton AB and in his later years joined the firm of Basil Hobbs in Nanaimo, BC.
A special thank you to both sides of our families, our good neighbours and friends for giving their time and support to Diana and D’Arcy. Also thank you to all the doctors and nurses in I.C.U. at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria for the care they provided and the staff and volunteers at the Nanaimo Regional Hospital Palliative Care Unit for making Bill comfortable in his final days. At Bill’s request there will be no service. On a warm, sunny day his ashes will be spread along one of his favourite beach walks.
Rest in peace, Bill.
