Bill McCaskill, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend passed away at the Southwood Hospice in Calgary, AB on June 25, 2018 at the age of 83 years after his short battle with cancer.
Bill was born in Crossfield, AB then moved to Calgary where he attended SAIT, worked in the steel industry for thirty-five years, met his wife Barbara and raised his family.
