WILLIAMS, Orvel Stanley
His devoted family sadly announces the death of Orvel, on January 28, 2006, at the age of 88. His beloved wife and close companion, Della (née FOURNIER) is left to mourn, together with their three loving daughters Karen (Paul DZATKO,) Shelley (Scott BARCLAY,) and Heather (Marko NOGA,) as well as "the apples of his eye," his adored and adoring grandchildren, Kyle and Jillian NOGA. Orvel was a Torontonian, born-and-bred, who recalled his life with his four siblings, raised by their deserted mother during the Dirty Thirties, when times were hard and people were poor. He originally taught himself to play the guitar, progressed to lessons and soon began to play professionally with small groups of musicians in gigs around the city and in cottage country during the summer months. Before his marriage, he worked at Massey Harris and then became the owner of the BA Gasoline Station at Queen and Gladstone from 1947 to 1953. Playing tennis kept him in good shape and together with Della, they were avid supporters of their local tennis club (Orchard Heights) and played for many years. In fact, Orvel played right up to the age of 86. He was a gentle man and gentleman, a family man who had a long and fulfilling life centering around his family and Friends, who now have many fond memories to sustain them in their sorrow. "And I love you so" A Memorial Gathering in celebration of Orvel's Life will be held at a future date at The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre, 1535 South Gateway Road, Mississauga (905) 602-1580.
