1925 – Tugaske, SK
September 11, 2014 – Calgary, AB
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of William Edgar Maynes on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at the age of 88 years.
William was born in Tugaske, SK in 1925. William farmed in Saskatchewan until 1967 when he relocated his family to Calgary. He remained an ardent fan of the Saskatchewan Rough Riders and spoke often about his love of farming. He had great compassion for all creatures great and small and was a voracious reader with books never far from his reach.
He was one of the good ones and we will miss him greatly every day of our lives, but we will remember how he lived his life with humour, kindness and grace and honour his memory by attempting to achieve the amazing qualities that seemed effortless to William.
William is survived by his caring wife Arlene; his children, Bradley (Carolyn), Gregory, Leslie (Sigfried) and Jason (Jana); grandchildren, Elizabeth, Evan, Shannon and Jordan; sister Verna (Bruce) Coates; and by his nephews. He was predeceased by his father George, mother Mary, brother Wesley and sister Evelyn.
A private family service will be held at a later date. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
