HALLSWORTH, William Clifford (Bill) - July 15, 1951 - June 24, 2012
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our long time friend and ACFamily Forums Administrator, Bill Hallsworth, who passed away on June 24, 2012. Bill was doing what he loved to do...riding his motorcycle with a group of friends...and died tragically in a motorcycle accident in Oregon.
Bill joined Air Canada in Montreal on July 1971, and retired in Vancouver on May 2003. For many years, Bill was involved with IT at Air Canada first in Montreal as a maintenance communicator and then in Vancouver, including his last position as Manager, Information Technology - Technical Services Western Canada, Europe and Asia in YVR. Bill was also active in "Dreams Take Flight" for many years.
Upon retirement, besides being Forums Administrator for the AC Family Network, he was the main coordinator of the Pionairs Fraser Valley coffee group in Chilliwack, B.C. and the Stradavarious Motor Guzzi Riders Group which he founded. Bill always seemed to have a smile on his face, was very willing to help everyone out with any computer issues they had, and warmed up any gathering at which he was present.
Bill is survived by his wife, Kim, sister - Valerie Hallsworth- Beames, children - Jared Hallsworth, Ashlie Hallsworth, Jason Hutton, and Nicole Hutton, as well as grandchildren - Lucas and Adria.
There will not be a funeral, but instead a celebration of life to be held on Sunday, July 8, 2012, at 1300 hours at the Valley Yamaha at 44310 Yale Road West in Chilliwack. Bill will be cremated.
Our sincere condolences go to all his family and friends. We shall miss him...
