Edward (Skip) Joseph Willis is predeceased by his loving wife Betty Willis. Skip deeply loved and cared for his dear wife Betty and was looking forward to his reunion with her. Skip passed away on May 12, 2021 at the age of 83 years.
Skip had an active full life and was a multitalented, gentle, kind man with a strength of character that shone brightly through his personality for all to see. He was a man of impeccable honour and integrity, honesty and fairness at the core of his life's endeavours. His badge of honour was his credibility, sacred ground when expounding in testimony on anything of importance. Skip was an avid musician, singer, songwriter, who accomplished much, writing over 200 plus songs and creating three full length CDs of his work. Skip and Betty loved their music.
Skips accolades were varied and many in the areas of leadership, policing, physical fitness, education, and training. He has golfed most of his life and loved the game. His friendly demeanor, jokes, and sense of humour captured the hearts of many who he considered his friends.
Skip was a husband, father, uncle, grandfather, and great grandfather to his loving family. He will be remembered lovingly by all who received his smile and knew the humble man within.
A private family service will be held. Interment will take place at the Ryley Cemetery.
