Dad passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 19, 2012 in the Royal Jubilee Hospital, Victoria, BC at the age of 81 years. He was predeceased by his wife Shirley; parents Thomas and Edith Webb; and brother Walter. Dad is survived by daughters Debra and Sheila; sons Glen (Jeannine) and Bruce; and precious granddaughter Gabrielle. He is also survived by his sister-in-law Sheila Campbell (George), nephews Grant and Robert Campbell and Tom and Grant Webb.
Dad was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on January 28, 1931. He graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Manitoba in 1952. Dad and Mom were married on September 19, 1952 and lived in Winnipeg until they retired to Qualicum Beach, BC in July, 1993. Dad worked for Imperial Oil for many years followed by the Province of Manitoba (Department of Industry and Commerce). Dad was a 50 year member of Sturgeon Creek Masonic Lodge. Many summers were spent at the cabin in Pickerel Lake, Ontario before moving to BC. In retirement, Dad devoted a great deal of time and effort developing his yard of which he was very proud. He also spent time volunteering at Milner Gardens. Dad especially enjoyed conversations with his morning coffee group, referring to themselves as “The Flat Earth Society”.
The family is sincerely grateful to all who attended to our Dad at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (Emergency), BC Air Ambulance Service and Royal Jubilee Hospital (ICU) for their exceptional care.
