BAUX, William (Bill)

1947 – September 12, 2018

 

Bill had an indomitable spirit and an unwavering devotion to his wife and family.  He cherished his wife Donna and the remarkable life they shared together.  Bill’s family was the pride and joy of his life and he was always there to support them in achieving their highest potential.  He was also a tireless and selfless volunteer, serving Lions Clubs International for 34 years.

Bill graduated from the University of Calgary in 1969 with a B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering.  Upon his retirement in 2008, after working 27 years for Shell Canada Limited, he enjoyed spending his free time travelling, watching sports and spending time with his family.

Bill is survived by his wife Donna of 47 years, children Maureen (Arnold), Elaine (Bob), Gordon (Melanie), grandchildren Scott, Ryan, Claire, Jason, Mark, Aubrey, Oliver, Amos, sister Judy, and brother-in-law Howard.

At Bill’s request, no funeral service will be held.
