July 2, 1940 – October 22, 2012
It is with great sadness that the family announces the sudden passing of William David Hewitt on October 22, 2012.
Bill was predeceased by his parents Len and Betty and son Bobby. Bill is lovingly remembered by his wife of 52 years, Helen Hewitt; son Scott (Lucille); grandchildren Kyle, Chris, Jenny, Brittney, Courtney and Mitchell; brothers Len (Rita) and Dan. Bill leaves behind great neighbours and many friends especially, “friends of Bill W.” Bill was born July 2, 1940 in Windsor, Ontario where he grew up as a child leaving to pursue a career with the Canadian Military. After 25 years of service Bill retired from the military and went on to direct the Thorpe Recovery Centre in Lloydminister before retiring to Cumberland. Many will remember him for his favourite pastime of riding his blue trike all over the Comox Valley.
The family wishes to thank the wonderful nurses and doctors of ICU at St. Joseph’s Hospital and especially Dr. Olga Lamikyna.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Kitty Cat PAL Society. See www.kittycatpals.com for more information. Condolences and any memories can be shared with the family by visiting www.yatesfuneral.ca
A Celebration of Life will be held November 3, 2012 from 1:00 to 3:00 at the Cumberland Cultural Centre (downstairs Buchanan Hall).
