SOMERTON, Alfred William (Bill)
March 27, 1944 – April 25, 2008
With saddened hearts we announce the passing of our beloved Bill. Predeceased by his mother Joan and father Fred. He is survived by his wife Sharleen, brother David and sister-in-law Linda, his sister Mary Jo (Jim), his rather large extended family: son Wally (Fiona), daughters Tina and Teresa, sons Tony and David, nieces Shannon and Brianne, grandchildren Colton, Walter, Tanner, Grayson and Pfreddii-Marie.
Bill’s great passions and loves were family, friends, children, animals, hunting, fishing, cooking, playing his guitar and “making music with his friends”. He was known for his great sense of humour. Bill served in the Royal Canadian Navy for a short time and then 35 years in Corrections.
Memorial to be held at Royal Canadian Legion Branch 88 in Maple Ridge Monday May 19, 2008 at 11:00am. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Canadian Liver Foundation. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
