BARBER, William (Bill) John July 26, 1926 – January 26, 2013 It is with heavy hearts that the family announce the passing of a beloved husband, father, grandpa, great grandpa, uncle and great friend. Bill (born to Elizabeth and John Barber in Melville, Saskatchewan) is survived by his loving wife Bernice of 66 years and children Bruce (Joanne) and Kelly (Brian); brothers Jerry and David; and sister Kathy; grandchildren Lindsay, Michael, Erin and Alexandra; and great grandson Aidan. Bill was predeceased by his sister Dorothy and brothers Casper and Chris. He will also be missed by many special nieces and long-time friends of near and far. He will be remembered for his love of life, his great sense of humour and especially for his love of family. Bill's happiest moment was when he was surrounded by family and friends over a loving gathering of food, wine and song rich in discussion of family, current events, politics and solving the world problems of the day. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. The family would like to extend a special thanks to the Broadmead Lodge staff for all the support and care provided to Bill over the last two years. A Celebration of Life will be held of Sunday, February 10, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. at Summergate Recreation Centre, 2045 Summergate Blvd., Sidney, B.C.
