Obituary

On Sept 11, 2014 Dr. William Bobey of Edmonton passed away at the age of 87 years. Despite recent failing health he was able to enjoy independent living until the end. He is survived by his wife, Grace, son Geoff, daughter Nicola and son-in-law Conrad Schiebel with grandchildren Alexandra and Rudi, son Andrew and daughter-in-law Fiona with grandson Dylan, and his brother Nicholas. He was predeceased by his brothers Nestor and Stephen. Born in Winnipeg, Bill moved to Edmonton and studied Medicine at the University of Alberta ultimately specializing in Psychiatry. He served in the Royal Canadian Medical Corps reserve and retired with the rank of Major. Some of his fondest memories are of his experiences traveling in the Northwest Territories as a psychiatric consultant. After retiring at the age of 70, his biggest joy was watching his grandchildren grow and flourish. A celebration of Bill’s Life will be held on Sunday September 21 from 2:00 – 5:00 pm at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home (10011-114 Street). In lieu of other tributes, memorial donations in memory of Bill may be made to the Nature Conservancy of Canada (www.natureconservancy.ca).
