DAWE, Billie (Bill)

Bill deeply missed the company of his dear wife Lee, who passed away in 2011.
He enjoyed many years as a partner and parts manager of Waterloo Mercury. Bill was the captain of the Waterloo Mercury hockey team that won the World Ice Hockey championship in 1950 and the Olympic Gold Medal in ice hockey in 1952. Bill enjoyed 40 years as a member of Windermere Golf and Country Club, and during this time shared many golf vacations with his family and friends.
Bill took great pleasure in the company of Bonnie and Bill, his grandchildren and especially his six great-grandchildren. He was a true friend to many and will be sorely missed.
The family would like to express their appreciation to Dr. Don Rempel and Dr. Paul Greenwood for the care given to Bill.
