    Dearest Shirley. We are deeply saddened to learn of Bill’s passing. Such a wonderful, happy, and dear friend, first as our very trusted bus driver then later as a golf buddy. I will always remember his encouragement to come join in the mixers at K.S. With our love, Brian and Grace

    We have such wonderful memories of our time with Bill and his family. Hot summers on Kootenay Lake, the cherry tree shenanigans at Blanche and Ralph’s, and golfing in the Okanagan, to name a few. Bill had such a wonderful smile, and such a kind and generous heart. A life well lived!

  • Debbie Selsing says:

    I have many great memories of my dad. There are far to many to list, but a few I would like to share. His stories, his laugh, his little smirk when he would tell a joke or try to make me laugh and his ability to create a masterpiece out of a few scraps of wood. I am so grateful to have grown up with such a wonderful, kind man. He was such an important part of my life and will forever be missed. I love you dad.

  • Danielle Jennings says:

    “Grandpa’s hold our tiny hands for just a little while but our hearts forever….”

    Papa, I am going to miss your stories, your jokes, your sweet tooth and your smile. You were an amazing Papa and I am truly going to miss you. I love you.

  • Justine Selsing says:

    You will always hold a special place in my heart Papa. I will be forever grateful that you came to Calgary for my wedding to share Eric’s and my special day with us. I hope that wherever you are there is unlimited peanut butter and one day I will meet you there with a spoon. I love you and will miss you always Justine

  • Shauna Mancini says:

    Words cannot express how much you will be missed papa. I am so thankful for all the fun things you did with me growing up. Creating my own paint bucket so I could help you paint the deck, swims in the pool that was always so immaculately cleaned, bike rides on the bikes you found at garage sales, dances in the garage with the juke box and teaching me how to play golf. Those are just a few of my favourite memories! Summer was always an exciting time because I could hardly wait to see what you had in store! Even when I got older and had my own kids you found a way to make it special for Tatum and Harper. I am so grateful that you got to meet them and they got to see the wonderful man you were. I will miss your stories, your hugs and kisses and the adventures you created. I love you and you will always have a special place in my heart! xoxo
