September 5, 1958 – November 7, 2013
Mr. Arthur Vivian “Bill” Eggins of Coronation, Alberta passed away lovingly surrounded by his family following a brief battle with cancer on November 7, 2013. Bill was only 55 years old.
Bill was born on September 5, 1958 to Arthur and Gladys Eggins in Olds, Alberta. He was a very hardworking man and you could be sure that everything he did was completed as only a perfectionist could.
Bill very much loved his family and when the grandchildren came you could not find a happier man. He could often be found going through a few of his collections of coins, records or the many clocks he had, singing all the while as he always said he “should have been a singer!”
Bill will be sadly missed by his family and friends who loved him so much.
Bill is survived by his wife Betty Lou of Coronation, their children Arthur (Megan) Eggins of Medicine Hat, Jessica (Eric) Weston of Grande Prairie and Joseph (Ashley) Eggins also of Medicine Hat, two cherished grandchildren Callie and Aaden, sisters Tanya (Don) Atkinson of Sundre, Wanda (Dennis) Weber of Didsbury and Gail (Rob) Speilman of Airdrie, brothers Philip (Bev) Eggins of Botha and David (Sue) Eggins of Craigmyle.
Bill also leaves to cherish his memory many nieces, nephews, other relatives and so many very dear friends.
A funeral service to celebrate Bill’s life will be held at the Coronation Evangelical Free Church on Friday, November 15, 2013 at 1 pm with Pastor Terry Belcourt officiating.
As an expression of sympathy and in loving memory of Bill, memorial contributions may be made to S.T.A.R.S. Air Ambulance in care of Coronation Funeral Home P.O. Box 358 Coronation, Alberta TOC 1CO, who have been entrusted with the care and funeral arrangements. 403.578.2928.
