December 26, 1930-March 20 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing on March 20, 2013 of our beloved husband, Dad, grandpa and great-grandpa William Emmerson (Bill). Born in Nanaimo B.C., Bill came to the mainland in the 1950s and became a well known professional transport driver making many friends in the industry. He is preceded by his son Murray, brother Murray, mother Elsie and father George (Buff). Loved and remembered by his wife Sylvia, daughters Moe (Mike), Lee (Stephen), son Steve (Kathy) and their mother Beth and stepson Steve. He also leaves nine grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. No service at Bill's request. A family celebration of his life will be held at a later date. A donation in Bill's name may be made to the heart and stroke or diabetes foundations by those who wish to do so.
