Remembering Bill Cummer

It is with a great deal of sadness that we announce the passing of Optimist Bill Cummer on Tuesday, May 7, 2013.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Denise Dolph and her family at this time.  Denise provided us with these words:

You may have heard already that my Dad, Bill Cummer, passed away peacefully at home on May 7 after a brief illness. The funeral service will be Friday, May 17 at 10:30 at Lakeview United Church. There will be a visitation (no open casket) Thursday, May 16 in the evening at McInnis and Holloway on Elbow Drive. The obituary will be out tomorrow in the National Post and I think tomorrow and 3 other days next week in the Calgary Herald. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Optimist Club William J. Cummer Scholarship. Details of locations and donation instructions are in the obituary.

I would appreciate it if you would forward this to your club members and other Optimists.

He will be missed by all who knew him!

Bill served 50+ years with the Optimist Club of Calgary and is fondly remembered for being a dedicated volunteer whose contributions have touched generations of youth throughout Calgary.  His passion and dedication were recently honoured by his fellow club members the last time that they hosted AMS&NW District members to a conference in Calgary.  Many of us have enjoyed and will treasure the company and fellowship that Bill always shared with every Optimist he met.
