FRANKLIN, William (Bill)
The Guest Book is expired.
Bill was born on May 30, 1922 and passed away peacefully on September 21 at the grand age of 91. He was born and raised in Vancouver. He was a lithographer, and loved to dance, travel, play tennis, and go hunting and fishing with his friends. He was an accomplished artist, who shared his passion as an artist with his longtime love, Caroline Mairani of Santa Barbara, California. Most of all William was a gentleman who was thoughtful, generous, and had a lighthearted spirit. William will be greatly missed by Caroline, his brother-in-law Tom Frew, his nieces Linda Case, Donna Sheh and Mary Franklin Brule, his great nieces and nephews and his great-great nieces. Thank-you to the caregivers at St. Paul's Hospital and Central City Lodge who kindly managed his short illness. Private services will be held on Saturday, September 28, 2013.
