1939 – 2011
It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden loss of William Wallace (Bill), on October 27, 2011. Bill was born on May 11, 1939 in Glasgow Scotland.
He came to Canada as a young man to work for the Hudson’s Bay Company in Labrador. Soon after, he joined the RCAF where he served until his retirement in Comox.
Bill had an incredible sense of humour, wit and pragmatic advice which will be greatly missed.
He is survived by his wife, Lois: daughters Lorna (Brian) Seal, Wendy (Craig) Newton and Shauneen Wallace; brothers, Philip, Randy, sisters, Helen, Margaret, Isobel; 8 grandchildren who adored him; William, Philip, Ceilidh Wallace; Holly, Ramsay and Billy Newton; Jillian and Callum Seal.
A private memorial service was held on Nov 11, 2011 at Crown Isle Resort.
