SHARMA, William (Bill) Born February 3, 1950 passed away unexpectedly on April 17, 2011 at the age of 61. His beautiful smile and gracious, giving spirit will be dearly missed by every single person whose path he crossed. He is heartbrokenly survived by his daughter Sheila (son-in-law Mark), son Shayne (daughter-in-law Malika), his treasured granddaughters, Evan and Cameron and precious grandson, Preston. He is also survived by the mother of his children, Betty, niece Ellie (Mackenzie), nephews Jeremy (Val) and Andrew (Katie) and their families, as well as his mother, Tara, his brothers Ranjan (Asha) and Victor, sister Rani and their families. He is predeceased by his father, Dukh, and finally by his cherished daughter, Sheri, whom he has continued to love beyond this earth since she left us in 1993. We all take comfort in knowing he has been reunited with his beloved little girl. For the past 30 years he was a Grain Worker and will be dearly missed by all of his friends and colleagues at Cargill Canada, as well as his colleagues at Port Coquitlam’s Emergency Preparedness Program, with whom he volunteered for several years. At The Giggle Dam Dinner Theatre, he was truly loved and appreciated by everyone, as he was always there helping, organizing, fixing, building or just clapping along with pride and support. Along with volunteering with many organizations, such as Special Olympics and Golden Spike Days, Bill somehow managed to stay in touch with an unfathomable number of people throughout his life, and always had time to drop by with samosas or Timbits. He was an avid sports fan and played sports his entire life. And yet, although his life was unbelievably full, it is simply known to everyone that his life revolved around his 3 grandchildren. Without a doubt, they were his first priority, and the majority of his time, and his heart, was happily devoted to them. These children were blessed with the most unique, loving relationship and “Grandy” will be desperately missed by all of them. A Memorial Service will be held for Bill on Sunday, May 1st at 1pm at Terry Fox Secondary in Port Coquitlam, followed by a casual celebration at The Giggle Dam Dinner Theatre. Because helping kids in need has always brought Bill the most happiness throughout his life, in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Canuck Place.
