FORAN, William Christian

January 3, 1974 – Calgary, Alberta
November 6, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

William C. Foran of Calgary, AB, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 at the age of 44 years.

William was an intelligent, articulate, caring, thoughtful and generous man with a quick, dry wit and a passion for learning, political debate, and the arts. He encountered many challenges over the course of his life but met each challenge with courage, strength, and determination, and in spite of an overwhelming number of obstacles, achieved many personal and professional successes and touched the hearts and lives of countless friends and strangers from all walks of life. William also loved animals and was devoted to his golden retriever and constant companion of fourteen years, Kaos.

William is survived by his parents, Bruce and Diana Foran; sister and brother-in-law, Kerri and Joseph Sanders; nephew and nieces, Cadyn, Brenna, and Sophia Sanders; dear friends, Ken Drysdale, Bryon Grove, Dean McEachern, Lindsey Froland, Tracy Albrecht and Carol Baker.

He was predeceased by his grandparents, Fred and Isabelle Foran and Betty and John Slobodian; his uncle, Gregg Foran; and his beloved dog, Kaos.

In keeping with William’s wishes, there will be no service. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Alberta Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, www.albertaspca.org or the Canadian Mental Health Association – Calgary Region, Suite #400, 105 – 12th Avenue S.E., Calgary, AB T2G 1A1 Telephone: (403) 297–1700, www.cmha.calgary.ab.ca, and/or random acts of kindness could be performed in William’s honour. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. We will all cherish our many wonderful memories of William and will hold him close in our hearts forever.

    We are so sorry for the loss of son, brother and uncle. We still remember Buck from when he was little and then as a young teen announcing the skating club ice show. A life cut short is always tragic but hold close to the memories of better times. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
