Orville Wilson Weighill, on October 30, 2020 (age of 74), was called home for the longest fishing trip ever. Our beloved Husband, Dad, Stepfather, Bumpa (Grandfather and Step-Grandfather, Great Grandfather) was predeceased by his treasured parents Stewart and Ruth. He will live forever through the lives of his true love Josie; children Ross (Donna), Russell, Tren, Trina (Rob), and Tammy; ex-wife and friend Nora; his step-children Crystal (Mike), Heather (Tim), and Curtis; his sister Shirley (Jim deceased), brother Daniel (Carol); Grandchildren Logan (Khristina), Yaneese, Alalandra, Sabastian, Nickitta, Mackenzie, Duncan, Oscar, Evie, Georgia, Ruth, and George; step-grandchildren, Emma, Caleb, Eric, Conor, Kierra, Taryn and Rachel; and great grandchildren Maison, Aiden, Jayvyn, and Jaxson; and countless nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. A celebration of life will be held in summer 2021 as either an in-person service or through a virtual service. Service information will be sent out through email or text in April or June 2021. The family would like to extend a special thank you to all those who have cared for our beloved Husband, Dad, Bumpa, Brother, uncle, and friend during this difficult time: Virtual Hospital, Palliative Care, Grey Nuns Hospital, Dr. A. Raheem, and Pastor Allan of West Edmonton Beulah Alliance Church.
He will be forever remembered by his infectious laugh, mischievous ways, love for building, travel and fishing. In the end there are many lessons he taught us, to love unconditionally, to ask for forgiveness, to value family and most important of all to have a real relationship with God! As Pastor Dan Hickling said, “ We are eternally grateful for our Father in heaven that we find ourselves bowed before the Lord in worship, not preoccupied with why, but with who God is and how he will carry us through our grief. At the end we will make a choice to stay in our despair or rise above it. Allowing ourselves to be stronger for it and better yet be closer to God than we have ever been before!”
