William Abernethy Lunn

July 9, 1927 - May 24, 2011


It is with deepest sorrow we announce the passing of Bill after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

Bill worked for CP Rail for 42 years, served his machinist apprenticeship in Calgary, worked in Cranbrook’s Diesel shop, and transferred to Nelson in 1954, where he worked in the diesel shop as a Machinist & General Locomotive Foreman until his retirement in 1986.

His passions were his family and friends, fishing from the summer camp at Woodbury Resort and Sunshine Bay, bowling, gardening, crossword puzzles, and in recent years, the bus trips to Bonners and Worley.

Bill was predeceased by brothers; Jimmy, Henry, Bob and his sister Betty.

He is survived by loving wife of sixty years, Cora; daughter, Maxine (John); son Jim (Susan); grandchildren, Jennifer (Les) of Richmond, Jason of Calgary, Gillian (Dave) of Victoria; great-grandchildren, Colten and Jacob of Richmond; sister-in-laws Doris and Edna; nieces Darlene, Linda and nephew Bobby.

As an expression of sympathy, donations to the B.C. Cancer Foundation would be greatly appreciated.

At Bill’s request there will be no service.

It is so sad to hear about Bill. He did so much for me in my life. From hiring me in 1971 to rehiring me in 1985. He is in Joan and my prayers.
