William Bill Coltart

1940 – 2014

Our wonderful father and papa passed away on October 29 in St. Josephs Hospital after a lengthy battle with Parkinsons Disease. Predeceased by his loving wife of 40 years, Mary in 2008, he is survived by his two boys Bill Jr. (Sharon), Bob, brother Michael (Beverly), and four grandchildren, Paul, Jessica, Bradley and Elizabeth. 

After 32 years as a Coast Guard Radio Operator, Bill was involved in many community groups including the Vancouver Island Kidney Patients Association, Citizens on Patrol Society as well as BC Summer and Winter Games. He was also an avid Amateur Radio Operator (VE7 BMM) and could often be found chatting with other ham operators from around the globe. 

Service will take place on Wednesday, November 5 at 11:00am at Comox Valley Funeral Home, 1101 Ryan Road. Flowers gratefully declined. Donations can be made in Bill’s memory to the Vancouver Island Kidney Patients Association.
