William Gervin

October 6, 1924 — September 27, 2022

GERVIN, William John (Bill) RCAF – WW II.

On Tuesday, September 27th at utmost peace in hospital, Bill passed away just shy of his 98th birthday.  Predeceased by his cherished wife, Hilda. Loving father of David (Julie) and Karen (David Deme). Grandfather to Jonathan, Tara (Lévis) and Sasha (Jean-François), Andrew (Dacoda), Sarah, Grant, and Great Grandfather to Félix and Alix.   Predeceased by his sister, Betty Lunney.  Also survived by his many nieces and nephews.

Often referred to as a quiet gentleman and known for putting others first, he also had a quick wit and sense of humour.  Bill met his girl Hilly from Fallowfield, Ontario, married her and subsequently took her all over the world with his government career. He also took her on numerous trips across Canada and the United States for square dancing jamborees, and they spent winters in Clearwater Beach, Florida.  When not travelling the couple enjoyed life in Ottawa’s McKellar Park area and eventually Kanata (Pinehill Estates) where his favorite moments were Wednesday Coffee Mornings and Friday Happy Hours at the Clubhouse.  Always inquisitive, he often said “a day when you don’t learn something is a wasted day”

Friends may pay their respects on Sunday October 2nd, 2022, from 2pm  -  4pm and 7pm  -  9pm at the Garden Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 3440 Richmond Rd (between Baseline Rd. and Bayshore). Funeral Mass to be held on Monday October 3rd, 2022, at St Luke’s Anglican Church at 11am. Reception to follow. Burial will be at Beechwood Cemetery.

As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations to the St. Luke’s Anglican Church or The Ottawa Hospital Palliative Care Unit would be appreciated.
