Carby, William (Bill) Charles
1939 – 2021
With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Bill on August 4, 2021, at the age of 82 in Stony Plain, Alberta. Bill was born on January 15, 1939, in Turner Valley, Alberta to Carl & Rose Marie (Dolly). He met Pat, who was the love of his life in Spirit River in which they were married for 60 years and raised their family in Hinton, Alberta.
Bill was known for his enthusiasm of sports, a life long “Habs” fan and he played competitive sports throughout the Peace country; ball and hockey for the Peace River Stampeders, ball with the Rycroft Rebels, hockey with the High Prairie Regals and for many years hockey with the Spirt River Rangers and “Old Timers” for the Hinton Night Hawks. He spent many years at sports centres coaching and cheering on his children and grandchildren while they played hockey, ringette, football, volleyball, and basketball.
He loved to spend time with his family, whether it was fishing in Slave Lake, hunting in Hinton, enjoying the scenery in Nordegg, or the sunshine in Sylvan Lake at their family lake lot.
Bill will always be remembered as a loving husband to Pat, devoted father to: Val (Diane), Michele (Dave), Carlene (Dan), and Paula (Randy) and a proud grandfather to seven grandchildren: Michael, Natashia, Breanne, Mathieu, William, Isabelle, and Randi.
Bill’s family would like to extend their sincerest thanks to the Stony Plain Hospital’s doctors, nurses, and staff for the wonderful care provided.
A private family gathering will take place at a later date.
