William Bill Errico June 2, 192 5-March 11, 2018 It's not too many 92 year olds who can still buck, split, and stack 12 cords of wood in a season, but Bill Errico was not your typical ninety-two-year-old. Living on Gambier Island with Yvonne, his beautiful wife of over seventy years, Bill knew that he needed that wood to heat the house through winter; to keep their home a warm and welcome refuge for his five children (and spouses), thirteen grandchildren, sixteen great grandchildren and countless nieces, nephews, and friends. Bill was born at home on Angus Drive in Vancouver, BC in 1925 to his proud parents Alfonso and Harriet Errico, brother Ernie and later joined by little brother Bob. Bill lived in Vancouver until he left to ride the rails as the headwaiter on the Canadian Pacific Railway dining car to pay for school. In 1943, his first year at UBC, he joined the Navy where he became the Skipper of the HMCS Workboy (which he would proudly tell you was the smallest commissioned ship in the Navy) until he was discharged in 1945. After the war, Bill headed to Toronto to train as a chiropractor, where he met and married the love of his life, Yvonne. Heading back West in 1949, he opened a chiropractic practice in North Vancouver, the second ever chiropractor on the North Shore (the first being his uncle) and practised there for 42 years. Along the way, he and Yvonne welcomed their children Carolynne, Billy, Janis, Noni, and Jamie - with many grandchildren and great-grandchildren to follow. Despite his love of the North Shore, his true home could always be found on Gambier Island and the place he built by the sea for his family to gather. As the gentle family patriarch with a wicked sense of humour, he will be missed, and we will strive to carry on his legacy of love and support. A Celebration of Bill's life will be held Thursday March 22 at 2:00pm at the Clubhouse, Gleneagles Golf Course, 6190 Marine Drive, West Vancouver.
