It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Laurence Beverly Hill on February 14, 2015 in Canoe, BC. Laurence was born in Birch Hills, Saskatchewan on February 24, 1936 and was the youngest of 5 children.
Laurence was a loving husband to Jean for 57 years and a devoted father to: Harold, Linda (Roy) and Ray (Colleen). He was a caring grandfather to: Shannon (Jesse), Travis (Talia), Amanda (Nic), Jesse, Sarah and Piper and a great grandfather to Henry, Wyatt, Maxwell and Alexandria. He was predeceased by his parents Louis and Zella Hill, as well as his brothers Roy and Harold Hill, and his sisters Norma Griffin and Louise McGuire.
Laurence was a very proud man and he was very passionate about his wife and family. Some of his favourite moments included having the whole family together for special occasions or simply having a meal together. He loved being with his family and friends and he especially enjoyed visits with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
He enjoyed playing crib and bingo at the Canoe Seniors Hall and cards with many great friends. He loved to play Keno and take trips to the casino.
Laurence was known for his big smile and he always like to joke with you. He lived to make others smile and laugh. He is leaving behind a legacy of love and laughter.
Dad you were the BEST Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather we could ask for and we were all so lucky to have you in our life. We’ll miss you Dad, and you will NEVER be forgotten. You’ll live on in our hearts forever. Until we meet again. Love you always.
