At Edmonton, AB on September 2, 2016 in his 82nd year. Son of the late Thomas and Mabel (Kinnear) Elliott, Smiths Falls, Ontario. Beloved brother of Joan Gallipeau (late Michael) and dear uncle to Margaret Nolan (John Mulka) and Marilyn Riddell (late Robert), all of Edmonton and grandniece Alanna Nolan, Calgary. Also survived by family in Ontario and California.
After his retirement from the federal government in the early ‘90’s, Bill joined the rest of the family in Alberta where he continued his support of community through participation in numerous outreach programs and committees. Active in his church – St. Matthias Anglican in Ottawa and Christ Church in Edmonton, faith and family provided support and solace for Bill. This exceedingly private and quiet gentleman often surprised others with his dry wit and keen observations. An avid genealogist, Bill assisted many families around the world in researching family history.
