William James Otto

December 5, 1942 - November 23, 2015


Bill passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family following a courageous battle with cancer. Through it all he continued living life to the fullest and maintained his thoughtfulness of others. He is survived by his loving wife of 41 years Fran, daughter Laura Lingard (Travis), foster daughter Roxanne Boese (Lester) and grandchildren Trey Lingard and William and Brandon Boese. Bill is also survived by his sister Carol Maurer (Hans).

Bill was born and raised in Powell River. Many will remember him as a longtime manager at Valley Building Supplies. He enjoyed the simple things in life: the outdoors, a love of animals, his property and his family.

The family would like to thank Dr. DuToit, Dr. Hoffert and Dr. May, intensive care unit nurses and the palliative care team. We would also like to give a special thanks to Janet (oncology). We felt very supported by family and friends who took care of everything for many months, including animals, meals, visiting and phoning.

A celebration of life will be held at United Church Trinity Hall at 1 pm on Saturday, December 5. Donations may be sent to Powell River Hospital Foundation.
