BROOKES, William "Bill"
Dad passed away peacefully on December 12, 2013, surrounded by his family on the day after his 92nd birthday. Predeceased by his beloved wife Christine (Fouchard). Dad was dearly loved and will be missed by his four children, Carol (Rob McGregor), Connie Anderson, Barbara (David Moon), Bill Jr. (Laura Howard). Dad's legacy carries on in his eight loved grandchildren: Jason, Christopher, Jessica, Colin, Kyle, Reid, Ciara and Siobhan. A WW2 veteran, Dad saw action in France, D-Day and Germany and ended the war in Holland. Dad was an electrician, woodworker and builder. His passions in life included hockey, especially the Ottawa Senators and 67's and in later years feeding his chipmunks, ducks and blue jays. Dad's playful and positive spirit left a mark on everyone who met him. Special thanks to the wonderful staff at the Ottawa Hospital, Civic campus. Our family would also like to sincerely thank the friendly and compassionate staff at Park Place Senior Suites for making Dad feel at home. Friends may pay their respects at
