July 5, 1927 – January 9, 2021
It’s with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of Robert (Rocky) Williams.
Dad left us on Jan 9th, 2021 at his home in Comox, BC. at the impressive age of 93. His family was at his side throughout the Christmas break.
Rocky was born in Cumberland on July 5th 1927. He began a career as a mining surveyor from 1950 – 1955. He then moved over to Land Surveying and worked from 1962 to 1997 (35 yrs) as a BC Land Surveyor.
Retirement for Rocky consisted of Golf, time with family and pursuing a passion project in his beloved birth town of Cumberland, ie: Mapping the Bore holes that the Canadian Colliers had drilled through out the Cumberland area.
He will be greatly missed by his Son and Daughter in law (Blake and Louise Williams), Daughter (Paulette King), and Grandchildren (Paige, Melissa, and Sam Williams), Matthew and Cory King.
