August 11, 1930 – Winnipeg, MB
September 28, 2013 – Calgary, AB
Bill passed away on Saturday, September 28, 2013. He had a good run: 83 years of life, 55 years of marriage, two employed kids, and saw his favourite teams, the Flames and Stampeders, win championships.
Bill spent his business life in the electrical industry retiring at age 83. He grew up a ‘Winnipeg Boy’ and moved across Canada and back again, finally making Calgary his home.
Bill is survived by his beloved Luscious Lewis (Barbara “Bobbie” Nelson); son John (Marilyn); daughter Melanie (Scott Soehn); five adored grandsons, Spencer, Will, Cael, Fin, and Tim; and Kipper the dog. He is also survived by several in-laws and numerous nephews and nieces in Canada and abroad, and too many friends and adopted family to name. He was predeceased by his parents Anne and Jerome; and siblings, Lorne, Eric and Margaret.
