BILNEY, John Lawrence
On Wednesday July 18th 2007 John Lawrence BILNEY passed away. The father of two sons, Brook and Blaise, husband to Derris nee HOYE, / BILNEY, brother to Molly, uncle and grand uncle to some twenty plus nieces and nephews in England, and Grandfather to Ruby, Sean, Orian, and Ella of Galiano Island, British Columbia He was the son of Harry Francis BILNEY, and Kitty BATTLE. John died lucid, and with much grace, in the arms of his family, due to a Pesky Case Of Lung Cancer as Dean Hagopian or Peter Griffin might say with a slightly 'filthy brogue'. John spent most of his working life as an Advertising Man. One strange creative coincidence was his campaign for Esso's 'Put a Tiger in Your Tank' in the early sixties which resulted in Buck Owens hit 'I've Got a Tiger By the Tail' which Owens penned after spotting the poster 'Put a Tiger in Your Tank' at a gas station while touring west Texas. John came to Canada in 1953 and met the woman he would marry, the love of his life, on that very boat (The lsle de France) as if out of one of the many movies of the time. Now if this were a resume it might not look too hopeful. John worked his way through some sixteen premiere Ad agencies, making fast Friends and some very few enemies along the way. Outside the Ad Game (as well as within) John was a diverse and prolific creative person. He wrote stories, he painted pictures, and he played music. Over the last four years, since John and Derris moved west to be close to the family, John painted some seventy beautiful canvases inspired by his new surroundings in the Gulf Islands of British Columbia He was always sharp, never retiring. He repeatedly spoke of his many dear Friends, and would gladly regale us with wonderfully endless tales of days gone by. Sadly, those tales will now need a new narrator. As a man of many words, his 'famous' last ones were: 'That's Easy For You To Say!' Which of course none of this is. Thanks and Recognition to: Dean Hagopian, John Sebert, Emmet McPartland Patrick Bryan
