It is with a sad heart that we say farewell to my dear husband Bill, who went to his just reward on Sunday, October 25, 2015. Proud father of Bobbie Sue Chambers & Scott Chambers (deceased). Dear Grandpa to Mike, Tom and Stephen Scinocca. Dear Bumple to Kelli, Traci, Cheryl, Mitchell, Matt, Nicki, Sara, and Great Grandpa to McKenzie. Brother of Donald Chambers from Brentwood Bay, B.C., and sister Barbara Marriott of Niagara Falls, Ont.
Born in Edinburg, Scotland on January 23, 1935, he came to Canada by steam ship as an infant, along with his twin brother Bob, and his Mother Peggy.
Bill spent most of his life in management, and assorted other adventures. Car Salesman, Realtor, News ad Salesman, Manager of Auto Part Sales.
He was very proud to be a Mason (retired), and honoured their traditions.
He loved anything to do with automobiles and totally rebuilt many vehicles including a 1926 Star, his pride and joy.
Councilman, volunteer fireman, just to mention a few. A wonderful joyful man who loved and honoured his family, and friends. Friends were plentiful and he appreciated all of them from—Niagara Falls, Willoughby Township, Fort Erie, Toronto in Ontario, to Duncan, B.C.
Always great at building and creating things & charming all of those he met. He was a fan of Rube Goldburge, making things work in the oddest ways sometimes.
He had a very special relationship with his daughter Bobbie Sue and her sons. All his step-children also treasured him as he did them.
We thank Dr. Lauren Jackson, for her continued care and support, and the wonderful nurses and all staff at Cowichan District Hospital for their dedicated caring of Bill during his final stay there.
Thank you my Bill for all our wonderful life together.
Celebration of Life for Bill will be on Saturday, November 21st at Duncan Travel Lodge from 3 pm to 5 pm. Online condolences may be made at www.hwwallacecbc.com.
