Wilf was born in Nanaimo February 17, 1922. He worked in the woods for McMillan Bloedel – Nanaimo River division until his retirement in 1984. Throughout his life Wilf was involved in many sports and he was very competitive. His younger years he played soccer and he was an avid bowler in both 5 pin and 10 pins. His final sport that he loved was horseshoes and he turned out to be a world competitor and a Canadian champion. He made many acquaintances and long friendships through this sport. He lived his life to the fullest and he will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
There will be a Celebration of Life to be announced at a later date.
