March 8, 1929 – November 24, 2011
Bill passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 24, 2011 at the age of 82 years.
Bill was employed in the lumber industry for thirty years. He was an avid golfer, fisherman and enjoyed the “occasional” drink of scotch, but most of all enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.
Bill will be dearly missed by his wife Ada; children, Sherry (Jack) Lane, Sandy Hemsing and Bill Hancock Jr.; granddaughter Danielle Hemsing; and great-grandson Jaden. He is also survived by his sister and brother-in-law Shirley and Terry Wilkinson; and brothers-in-law and sisters-in-laws, Lloyd Kennedy, Carl and Delores Kennedy and Everett and Bev Kennedy.
At Bill’s request no funeral service will be held. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made directly to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation, 2888 Shaganappi Trail, NW, Calgary, AB, T3B 6A8. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
