Bill will also be mourned by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, as well as great nieces, great nephews, many lifelong friends, friends and co-workers. Bill is predeceased by both his paternal and maternal grandparents, his father Todd Elliott, his younger brother Harry, and niece Teri. Every person whose life was touched by Bill knew that he was a man of strong principle who seldom left frustrations unexpressed. With his expertise in operating heavy equipment and specializing in the operation of backhoes, his work often kept him away from home but he worked the long hours to provide for his children. When home, he became mentor, counselor, and the kick in the butt when needed to not only his kids but others in the neighborhood providing what supports he could when needed. Bill absorbed knowledge through books, first-hand experience, and many conversations with many different people which made it possible for him to share long conversations with friends and family about a wide variety of historical and current events. An avid hunter and fisherman, he loved exploring the mountains, lakes and rivers of B.C. Though he spent the last years of his life in AB he was most happy in BC where most of his family and friends resided. Different thoughts and different memories for each one of us who knew you leave both smiles and aching hearts but you will stay because you are a part of each and every one of us. Good-bye for now, we'll catch ya' later, and we love you, always.
