Mr. William “Bill” Lewis Cheney, long-time resident of Drayton Valley, Alberta passed away at Drayton Valley Continuing Care on Monday, February 13, 2017 at the age of 86 years. Bill will be best remembered for the pride he had for having served in the Army Reserves and the many pastimes he truly enjoyed. For many years, Bill worked at the Drayton Valley Hospital and when time allowed, he could be found golfing or building and restoring computers. The outdoors was his favorite place to be, whether he was out on the quad or cruising around town with his rock ‘n’ roll cranked up good and loud. The sound of Bill’s whistling is sure to be missed. Bill is lovingly remembered by his children, Catherine Cheney (Robert Roper), Dwayne Cheney (Lorraine Lachance) and Curtis Cheney (Cheryl Berezowski); grandchildren, Beth-Anne, Brandi, Bryce and Brennen; the mother of his children and close friend, Patricia (Dwight) Turner and brother, Earl Cheney. Bill will also be missed by many friends, numerous nieces, nephews and extended family. Bill was predeceased by his parents, John and Cathrine Cheney and sister, Fern Boardman. Bill’s life will be celebrated at a later date. Memorial contributions in Bill’s name may be made directly to the charity of one’s choice. The Cheney family wishes to extend their thanks to Dr. Froud and all staff at Drayton Valley Continuing Care for the exceptional care of Bill throughout his illness and stay.
