Our dearest father and grandfather (papa), William Herbert (Herb) Wilson left this earth to join our beloved mother the late Irene (Reenie) Wilson on Friday, October 25th. He passed very peacefully with his children by his side at the Carpenter Hospice. Father of Gary (Sue), Donna (Mark), Shanon (Richard). Amazing and caring grandfather to Roy, Brock, Claire, Avriel and Melanie. Adored brother to his sisters Karen Jacinto and the late Kathleen Wilson and the late Marlene Rose.
Herb was born in Lachine, Quebec where he met the love of his life, Reenie. They were happily married for 56 years. Herb was a chartered accountant (CA) and served several roles including vice president of finance for Klockner Moeller, Canada. It was his role at KM that brought Herb and family from Quebec to Southern Ontario in 1978. Throughout the years Herb enjoyed travelling with Reenie and his family. He was very much a loyal family man enjoying anytime he could possibly spend with his children and grandchildren.
Dad will be missed by all but can now live in the eternal life with his beautiful bride, our mom, Irene.
The family sends their sincere thanks to the amazing and caring staff at Carpenter Hospice and Lasalle Park Retirement Home.
