William Earl “Bill” Gourlie

June 29, 1940 – May 2, 2019
When I am gone, my spirit will be with you, like a heartbeat I will steady you,

my soul will be your guidance,

and my love will be your strength.

Do not weep for me,

for I am the wind and the water and the sky. Each day will pass a little easier than the last, but the day when things seem unclear, listen to your heart, I’ll be whispering “I’m here”.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Bill Gourlie following a brief battle with cancer.

Bill was predeceased by his mother Miriam and his sister Audrey. He is survived by his loving wife Netty, his son Dan, daughter Shanon ( Gunnar), stepdaughters Lisa and Felicia (Tim), as well as grandchildren Dakoda, Kaylor, Brooklyn, Riley, and Colby and great grandson Colin.

A special thanks for the tender, loving care of the staff and Dr’s at Mills Memorial Hospital.

A Celebration of Life will be held Friday, May 10 at the Skeena Golf and Country Club in Terrace from 1 – 3 pm.
