To the Beckingham Family, my condolences as I am sincerely sorry for your loss. Bill Beckingham was the consummate Gentleman. He always took a genuine interest in you when you talked with him. He made you feel like a long lost friend.
I remember Bill fondly for his robust laughter and his wonderful way of making me and others always welcome at his home whether in Port Alberni or Qualicum. What a friendly and caring life he lived. With deepest condolences sent out to the entire family, but especially to my old buddy Charles. Our prayers are with you dear folk.
To all of the Beckingham families--Uncle Bill was an amazing man--growing up as neighbours and friends and having your home as a second home--Bill and Irenes door was always open and as children we spent alot of time with you in Port and Quallicum and for that he was an Uncle to me. This process of life is very sad as we say goodbye to our mentors, to those who made us who we are today. With Love and the greatest respect for all of you. Heather McGifford Armstrong
It is with regret we must extend our condolences to the Beckingham family. Bill was a good friend to our family and will most certainly be missed. We'll be sure to tip a glass to honor his memory during this Rememberence Day weekend.
Irene, Anne, Louise, Michelle, Charles and David.
Keep all your best memories close to your heart as the rest of us who knew him will do as well.
Bill had a huge impact on my life. He always made me feel so welcome in your home. He was always candid and let you know what he thought whether you liked it or not. I have tremendous memories growing up as friends and neighbors of your terrific family. Summers spent at the beach were the best of times and something I looked forward to year after year. Good Bye Bill. I hope there is great fishing in heaven. Love Daphne
