Dr. Bill Touhey was a long time resident of West Van, and later, North Van and Vancouver Island. In his usual quiet unassuming manner, dad died peacefully of old age 5 days short of his 95th birthday, surrounded by family at Berwick on the Lake Retirement Home in Nanaimo. Dad loved his family and his dogs, though not necessarily in that order! The Touhey home was always open to stray people and stray animals. Bill is survived by his wife of 64 years, Jacque, his 10 children, Sally (Tom), Mike (Sue), Dennis (Janet), Tom (Mary), Jack (Heather), Kathy (Don), Paul (Deanna), Pat (Diane), David, Jacqueline (Kevin), 23 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren and was predeceased by his father William, his mother Sarah, his sister Hilda and his twin brother Tom. Dad and Mom graduated together from the dental school at the University of Oregon. They were married on June 14, 1949 at St. Anthony's Church. We thank the Berwick staff and We Care companions who cared for dad in his final days. Dad was remembered during a mass at Berwick.
