William (Bill) J. Paquette

Passed away at age 73, on February 21, 2016. Born in Hazelton, BC, and raised in Terrace, BC, Bill spent most of his adult life on the Queen Charlotte Islands. Known and respected by many men in the Forest Industry on the coast, Bill was an accomplished logger with many stories to tell, mostly funny. A highly skilled Heavy Equipment Operator and Log Truck Driver, Bill also did a stint as a commercial fisherman.

Bill, you really were the strong silent type. A steadfast friend that never turned his back to someone when they were in need and never asked for anything in return except friendship. You always put others before yourself and were pleased and sometimes surprised to discover how much others loved and respected you. I will always love you, my honey bun.

Survived by his loving wife Debbie, sisters Diane, Adrienne and Jeanette, sons David and his wife Lori, Wayne and his wife Angelina, grandsons Ryan and Tyler, Joseph, Aaron and Patrick, and granddaughters Sleena and Melissa, great grand daughters Jaydn, Hailee and Elizabeth. He will be missed by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

We miss you so Dad
