William James Sim

William James "Bill" Sim November 7,1927 - November 25, 2012 It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of William(Bill) James Sim at the age of 85.

Bill was predeceased by his mother Jessie Ann, father Joseph and older brother Jack.

He was a loving husband to Marjorie for 62 years;a caring father to Joanne(John), Doug(Nicole) and Alan(Kris), and the world's best grandpa to Stephanie, Andrew, Jennifer, Lesley, John, Michele, Megan and Kyle, rarely missing any of the important events in their lives.

Bill retired at the age of 50 after selling his business "Sim's Custom Cartage".

Since retiring he enjoyed spending time with family and friends, as well as collecting and trading "Hot Wheels", through which he made many friends.

His other hobby included keeping Marge happy by graciously letting her win their daily card game.

He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

A celebration of Bill's life will be held on Sunday, December 9,2012 at 1:00pm at the Hampton Inn, 19500 Langley Bypass.

In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests donations be made to your favourite charity.
