FORBES, William "Norman" Passed away peacefully, in hospital on Friday, June 22nd at age 89, with his family by his side. Loving husband to his late wife Alberta (nee Scheer). Devoted father to his son Brian (Tammy) and his daughter Pam (Dieter). Cherished "Grampa" to his grandchildren Emily (Chris), Leif, Jamie, Andrew and Ozzie. Beloved brother to Daisy (Glenn), Edna and Olive and the late Violet, Betty and Jim. Our father and mother will be remembered by all who knew them for the warm and loving home they provided at 135 Mason Terrace. Always there for family with an unconditional commitment of support and care. Born in Northern Ireland on April 15, 1918, our father and his family immigrated to Winnipeg, Manitoba during the Great Depression, where they established a homestead. Father served in Allied Intelligence during WW II. Following the War, he joined the Department of National Revenue in Ottawa where he ultimately became a respected Senior Director with the Department until his retirement. He spent many a happy day with his golfing buddies as a long term member of the Hylands Golf Club - his devotion to golf was extraordinary, which he also instilled in all of his children and grandchildren. We wish to express our deep gratitude to the compassionate and caring nurses and staff at St. Vincent Hospital. The family will receive friends at The Church of the Ascension, 353 Echo Drive, Ottawa, on Tuesday, June 26th, after 10:30 a.m. until time of Service at 11 a.m. Interment Pinecrest Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Vincent Hospital or The Kidney Foundation would be appreciated. Published in the Ottawa Citizen from 6/24/2007 - 6/25/2007
