<div itemprop="description">EARL WILSON <br>(May 1, 1930 to May 15, 2016) <br> <br>It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Earl Douglas Wilson on May 15, 2016 at age 86. He will be lovingly remembered by all who knew him for his sense of humour and for his dedication and love for family, friends, and community. <br>Earl was born in Regina, Saskatchewan to James Edgar Wilson and Katherine Wilson (nee Hahn) on May 1, 1930. He is predeceased by sisters Dorothy Beaudry and Gloria Lain. Earl is survived by his wife of 62 years, Florence, three daughters, Heather, Karen (Larry), Donna (Eugene), one son, Douglas (Clarissa), 8 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren, sister, Patricia Young and numerous nieces and nephews. <br> <br>Earl leaves a legacy of caring and contributing to his community. Over the years, he received many certificates and awards for his contributions. For 25 years he served with cubs and scouts as leader and cub-master in Alberta and BC. He also served as President of Optimist International in the 1970’s, was a member of the Lion’s Club, and was President of the Arthritis Society, BC and Yukon Division for 10 years, running the Bingo at the Tsawwassen Sun Festival for many years on behalf of the Arthritis Society. He was also honoured for volunteering at the Kinsmen Retirement Centre for 25 years. <br> <br>Earl and Florence spent their retirement years traveling around the world in pursuit of information on the family tree. Over the years they visited over 50 countries, including China and found long lost relatives in Chile, France and Montreal. They enjoyed writing the stories of their memories and documenting the information of the family history. <br> <br>A very special thank you to the staff at Westshore Laylum Care Home for their exceptional care, compassion and support over the past few months and especially the last week of Earl’s life. <br> <br>A Celebration of Life is planned for June 25 for family and friends at the family home.
