On July 25, 2022 our cherished husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, passed away at the age of 92 years.
He was born in Harry Hill, Alberta on June 24, 1930. He grew up with three sisters and one brother.
At age 21 he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and worked in armament systems and avionics. He served until 1979.
In 1955 Bill met the love of his life Theresa Blanchfield. They were married on June 9, 1956. Bill and Terry had three children. He had a love of gardening, construction and helping others. Family meant everything to Bill. His big smile was very contagious, and he will be greatly missed.
