William Elmer “Bill” Hawes

May 2, 1933 – March 26, 2019
Bill left this life on Tuesday, March 26th, 2019 after a long fight with much pain and suffering borne with a “chipper” attitude and always ready to joke with friends, family….and wife, Joy!

Bill was born to Roy and Irene Brothers in Hyas, Saskatchewan on May 2nd, 1933.

Bill was the much-loved husband of Joy; father of Paulette (Dennis) Hope; granddaughter, Lara (Del) Curry and great granddaughter, Serena Curry; his youngest brother, George (Donna) Hawes and their sons, John and Harvey; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends. He was predeceased by a beloved grandson, Jeffrey Hope; a sister; and two brothers.

Many thanks to Drs. Fridriksson, Hunter, and Martin and all the home care nurses, all of whom gave such gentle and compassionate care for Bill over the last two years.

The family respectfully request no cards or flowers.
