It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Billy McLellan on June 1, 2021, at the age of 56.
Billy is survived by his parents Phyllis and Edward McLellan, sister Katherine (Kath) McLellan, brother-in-law Gregor (Greg) Nutter, nephew Vessilij Nutter, and long-time friends Dave Forbes and Dave Panasiuk.
Billy was born in Edmonton, Alberta on June 24, 1964. After graduating from the Neon Tube bending School in Portland, Oregon, USA in 1987, the Neon Sign business took Billy all over North America (Victoria, B.C.; Vancouver, B.C.; The United States: Delaware, Georgia, Las Vegas, Maui; and Grand Caymans). Billy loved scuba diving, skiing, travelling, drawing, and was passionate about dogs.
After his nephew Vessilij was born in 2002, Billy decided it was time to return to his roots and family and come back to Edmonton. He left the Neon Tube bending business and returned to Edmonton in the summer of 2003. Billy was working at a job he loved and for a great boss at Canadian Tire in Windermere.
He will be deeply missed by his friends, family and all who knew him.
Due to COVID restrictions, the planned funeral service will only include immediate family and a few close friends.
