William Ernest Webster
October 25, 1927 – October 9, 2014
Our beloved Bill was born in Victoria, BC, October 25, 1927 to William and Ruth Webster. Bill passed into the presence of his Lord and Saviour on the morning of October 9, 2014 at home, surrounded by his loving family. He will be deeply missed and forever remain in our hearts.
He is survived by Marilyn, his loving and devoted wife of forty-six years, and their four children: Jord (Justine), Jeff (Amie), Coralea (James), Ben (Rachel), his grandchildren and Marilyn’s family.
He is also survived by his three daughters, Lana, Lynne and Drena, their spouses and families, his youngest sister Jeanne (Glen), sister in-law Norma, many cousins, nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
He has been predeceased by his brother Daniel, sisters Maggie and Joy, grandson Marc and niece Janet.
Bill settled in the Comox Valley in 1958. He was a highly skilled technician and master of many trades. Close to his heart were his days of commercial fishing on the Deo Adjuvante with his beloved wife, Marilyn.
Bill was a beautiful gift, constantly reflecting the love of his Saviour. Sensitive to the needs of others, he would be found quietly serving and working to bless those around him. He was the heart of his family, lead by example, and gently touched the lives of those who knew him.
A conscientious hard worker all his life, Bill suffered a stroke in August 2012 which took his mobility and speech. Making the best of each day and not to be defeated, Bill mastered the controls of his powered wheelchair and enjoyed many hours in the great outdoors. He was often seen with his family, touring the waterfront at Point Holmes.
The Webster family would like to thank the many community home support workers and nurses for their their kind and dedicated care which enabled Bill to remain at home for his last two years. Special thanks also to Dr. Doug Anderson, the caring staff at the Comox Medicine Shoppe, and Eric from Toneff Funeral Services. The Websters would also like to express their deepest appreciation for the faithful prayers and kindness from friends and family during this difficult journey.
Celebration of Life Service will be held on Saturday, November 1, 2014 at 1:30pm at Comox Pentecostal Church, 1919 Guthrie Road, Comox.
