HEAVER – William Edwin

April 14, 1923 – October 23, 2010

William Edwin Heaver, born in Calgary on April 14, 1923 passed away on Saturday, October 23, 2010 at the age of 87 years, at the Foothills Country Hospice, Okotoks, AB, where the staff gave compassionate and unwavering care.

“Ted” attended Guelph and Olds agricultural colleges which helped in his love of farming. He also made a very successful career in the stock market business in Regina and Calgary. He was a long-standing member of The Ranchmen’s Club, where he enjoyed meeting friends, family and business associates and enjoyed a weekly game of bridge.

Ted was particularly in love with the game of golf. He was instrumental in providing land for Heritage Pointe. In his 83rd year, he achieved the dream of a Hole-in-One at #6 on the Pointe. In the end, Ted was taken by cancer but not until he beat it three times during a happy and productive life.

Ted loved being married and his first wife Muriel predeceased him. With second wife Nancy (separated), he enjoyed many years of companionship.

Ted genuinely loved his children and will be greatly missed by all of them; daughter Joyce Woolridge; grandson Craig (Carla) Woolridge; grandchildren, Kaydence and Logan; son and daughter-in-law Ron and Gail Heaver and Lee, Lindsay, Dauvery and Deidre, his beautiful and loving grandchildren. Ted is also survived by his sister Eva Templeton, who was his constant crib partner, always accompanied by the “occasional” cocktail. He was predeceased by his brother Victor Heaver.

A Celebration of Ted’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Saturday, October 30, 2010 at 10:30 a.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    Dear Ron and Gail – It has been a LONG time since we have had a chance to say hello and am sorry that it is under this circumstance. Ron I’m so sorry to hear that your dad passed away this week. I had no idea of his history with cancer but sounds as though he was a true survivor. I passed this news on to brother Bob and he sends his condolences as well. It is very hard to lose a parent even tho we know they have had both a long life and a good life. Hello also to Gail and to Lee, Lindsay, Dauvery and Deidre. Just wanted you to know I am thinking of you and your family. Sincerely Linda A
