It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of William (Bill) Beaumont Bone on September 21, 2020 at the age of 88, in Edmonton, Alberta.
Bill was predeceased by his dear wife, Gwenda Gail Bone (Berridge), their infant son, David William Michael Bone, and son-in-law, Rick Little. He is survived by his children Cathe (Jim) and Bill (Diana). Bill was a loving grandfather to Jen (Mike), Carlee (Kyle), Tera (Mike), Olivia and Mason. He was especially proud of his great grandchildren Kristen, Megan, Jacob, Jamie, Nolan and Reece.
Bill was born on January 2, 1932 in Kindersley, Saskatchewan. Bill and Gwen met in Drumheller in 1951 and quickly fell in love. They were best friends and married on April 16th, 1952, and celebrated 66 years of marriage. Bill was a man of many passions including playing his guitar, singing with Gwen, gardening, golfing, and watching sports with anyone who would join him. Bill enjoyed many summers at Pigeon Lake spending precious time with his family. His quick wit, sense of humour, and story-telling ability could make anyone laugh and will be missed by all who knew Bill.
The family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to the staff and caregivers at Shepherd’s Care. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a celebration of Bill’s life will take place at a later date, to be announced
