MOODIE – William

November 15, 1914 – December 7, 2009

We are sad to announce the death of Bill Moodie in Calgary on Monday, December 7, 2009 of natural causes.

Bill moved to Calgary in 2007, following the death of his beloved wife Flo, after sixty-five years of marriage. He was planning to spend the winter in Florida, hosting his sons and their families when time caught up with him. Bill worked for the Royal Bank of Canada, both before and after his wartime service with the RCAF, until retirement in 1974. His banking career included stops in North Bay, Vancouver and Winnipeg before serving as a senior executive in Montreal for over twenty years. After his career at RBC, he moved on to become President of Canadian Pacific Investments, a position he held for four years. Retirement beckoned and he and Flo moved from Montreal to a summer home in Ontario and a winter home in Florida, where he played golf and visited with friends and family. While Bill enjoyed his career, his leisure time and friends, nothing brought him more pleasure than his family.

He is survived by his sons, Walt (Anne), Charlie, Tim (Trish), and Dunc (Faith). Together they have given Bill and Flo six grandchildren, William, Jason, Jonathan, Melahanie, Kelly, and Will; and four great grandchildren, Nora, Savannah, Eve, and Wyatt.

We remember happy hour, dinners together, golf matches, and lively conversations. While we will miss his wise counsel and incredible wit, the memories are strong and will stay with all of us for a lifetime.

A Private Memorial Service will be held in BC in the spring. Forward condolences through

In living memory of Bill and Flo Moodie, trees will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH Telephone: (403) 276-2296.

  4. Dear Walt, Charlie, Tim and Dunc,
    Some of you we met over time, but have many fond memories and pictures of the years with your Mom & Dad. I wondered if Bill got to Calgary as he never let me know & I didn’t know where to call or write. Sincere sympathy to all of you and your families. The world was a better place for having both your parents. Since Doug died this year too, they will be up there sharing laughs as usual. Your Dad was always “Sweet William” to me! Sincerely, Jean Hamm

    We would like to express our deepest sympathy to the family of William Moodie, known to us as “Bill”. As mainly winter friends for over twenty years it was always one of the highlights of going back to Florida each year, knowing Bill and Flo would be there. Bill’s keen mind and wit, plus Flo’s hospitality were treasures that remain as happy memories. We miss Flo and we will miss Bill.

    To the Moodie family: I was very sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. I remember him so well and of course Flo. They lived just up the street in Pointe Claire and were great pals of Mom and Dad (both gone now too). They had so many laughs – golfing, partying. Your folks were very special to me thru my parents. Keep them in your hearts and enjoy the memories.
