July 31, 1930 – September 12, 2012
Bill Sellens, beloved husband of Brook, passed away peacefully and unexpectedly at Rockyview General Hospital in Calgary.
He will be lovingly remembered by his children, Richard (Laura) Sellens, John Sellens, Kate Labou, and Ann (Richard) Burrage. He loved them all, along with his grandchildren, Jamie, Martha, Madeleine, Jacob, Isabelle, Derek, Kevin, Colton, and Perri.
A mechanical engineer (BASc from UBC in 1953), he enjoyed formulating logical solutions in his work at Imperial Oil, and in his sailing and skiing. His work took him from Vancouver to Winnipeg, Toronto and Calgary. After his early retirement in Calgary, Bill went in search of perfect ski turns, working as a certified CSIA instructor. He greatly enjoyed his association with the Esso Annuitant Club skiing and hiking sections, with the Skyline Hikers of the Canadian Rockies, and with the Seniors Alpine Ski Club.
Recognizing Bill’s love for his home and family, a memorial reception for family and friends will take place at his home on Wednesday September 19, 2012 at 4 p.m.
In living memory of William Sellens, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403)243-8200Print This Obituary & Condolences
