William Herron WILSON

William Herron Wilson

Aug. 15, 1923 – Jan. 12, 2016

William died at Lady Minto Hospital on Salt Spring Island B.C. He was born and grew up in Prince Rupert, B.C. and joined the RCAF in 1942, serving with 419 Moose SQN as an Air Gunner. After the war he worked in Search & Rescue and as an Air Traffic Controller, until his retirement in 1965.

After living in seven provinces, Germany and England he moved his family to Salt Spring Island in 1967. He loved the Island, its peace and quiet and as he would say, “the best weather in Canada”.

William was predeceased by his wife of 58 years, Veronica in 2005 and his son, George in 2002. He is survived by two daughters, Heather and Ann (Yasuyuki), six grandchildren, Michael (Darlene), Scott (Debbie), Veronica, Heather, Alexandra and Jonathan, and two great-granddaughters, Naomi and Leah.

The family would like to thank Dad’s friends and neighbours for all their help and kindness.

No Services will be held by request.
