After a valiant health battle, Bill has left us to reunite in heaven with his beloved mother, Isabel, & father, Robert Giggie. Left to mourn are his much loved sister Rosalie Blackmore (late Robert) of the Miramichi, his cousin Dawn Goodridge in Ottawa, & extended family. He will be sorely missed by his best friend, Tom Simpson.
Bill was a long term Computer Programmer at Canada Post & remained active in the Federal Retirees Union for many years. Bill also offered his time and talents to many organizations, as a proud member of Eastview Branch of the Canadian Legion, the Ottawa Masonic Lodge, Tunis Shriners, Dominion Chalmers United Church & served for many years on the Board at Chateau Vanier. After retirement, he volunteered in a variety of charitable organizations.
Bill had a deep Christian faith that embraced everyone. He had an amazing, deep belly laugh and a unique perspective on life but one that respected other points of view. He will be missed by so many,
A Celebration of Bill's Life will be held at Tubman Funeral Homes, Garden Chapel, 3440 Richmond Road (between Bayshore and Baseline Road) on Saturday September 16, 2023, at 11 a.m. Interment Miramichi. Donations to the United Church of Canada would be appreciated.
