William Elliott Short

Bill passed away February 16, 2005 at the age of 85.

Bill was born in Coronation, Alberta in 1919 and moved to New Westminster BC as a teenager.

He met and married his wife Ida just before going overseas during WWII.

Bill returned as a Captain in 1946, and he and Ida came to White Rock to establish the White Rock Hardware Store.

Bill is survived by his wife Ida, his three sons, Brian (Bev) Short, Gary (Joanne) Short, David (Kim) Short and his daughter Elizabeth (Dan) Huva.

He is also remembered by his two sisters; Joyce North of White Rock and Isobel (Bob) Fairweather of Oliver as well as seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren, whom he thought the world of.

Bill’s devotion to his wife, his family and the great game of golf will be sorely missed.

A memorial gift can be donated to the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation.

Many thanks to the wonderful, caring staff of Weatherby Three.
