William (Bill) Alfred Boers beloved husband of Marie Boers of Calgary passed away on Wednesday, August 6, 2008 at the age of 74, after a long courageous battle with cancer. The youngest of 4, Bill was born in Regina, on November 26, 1933. Bill and Marie were married in 1962 and made Regina their home until 1967 when the young family was transferred to Calgary with Gulf Oil. He retired in 1992 after 37 years with the company.

His special talent for sketching and drawing entertained us all throughout the years. Besides his loving wife, Bill is survived by daughter, Sandra (Colin); son, Joseph (Amy) son, Kelly (Amanda); granddaughter, Jessica; 3 sisters, Trudy (John), Helen (Jim) and Hilda (Erwin); and many nieces and nephews.
