William Randall Dohlman

April 4, 1930 - March 7, 2017


Bill passed away at midnight on Tuesday, March 7, at Willingdon Creek Village after suffering with dementia for a year. Even though he was in a coma during his last days, he was surrounded by the love of many friends and also the very caring staff at Willingdon Creek. He had an impact on so many lives and we will long remember that beautiful smile of his.
Bill leaves to mourn his first wife Rose, daughter Lyn in Campbell River, sons Randy in Calgary and Dean (Jackie) in Nanaimo, grandchildren Shelby, Tyler, Cody, Ainsley, Sahara and Jasmin and great-grandson Jackson. He also leaves behind his life partner Rae, who was constantly by his side during their many years together, first in Madeira Park, then Sechelt and finally Powell River, where he continued to be a beekeeper and attended the farmers' market until two years ago when he was unable to do it anymore.
There are no words to express my gratitude to the ever-caring staff and management at Willingdon Creek Village. They are truly a family and I felt honoured to be a part of that family.
My heartfelt thanks also to Doctor Du Toit, who was always there for Bill, trying to make his journey as comfortable as possible. I will never forget his kindness.
For those who wish to contribute, a donation to Willingdon Creek Village activities department will be greatly appreciated. A gathering to celebrate Bill's life will be held at a later date.
