William John Tullis Lawrence
September 30, 1943 – July 25, 2008
With great sadness and a deep sense of loss
we announce that our beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother in-law has slipped away from us on July 25, 2008.
He fought a long, hard battle with cancer.
Tullis is survived by his wife Lesley of 43 years; daughter Jill (Ryan); son Glen (Louanne); brothers Brian, Ken (Debbie), Rick (Rhonda); and sister Vickie (Neil); grand children Katrina, Brianna, Ryan, Amy, Riley, Sarah, Jarett; sisters in-law Heather Crockart, Marg Corbin (Reg), Lynn Macgregor (Jack). He is predeceased by his father Bill and mother Ella.
Tullis was born in Dundee, Scotland and immigrated with his family to Ocean Falls, BC, and married Lesley (Tewnion).
Tullis obtained a CMA (Certified Management Accountant) in 1972 and worked as a cost accountant for Crown Zellerbach in Ocean Falls, and Campbell River. In 1973 he moved to Kitimat to work for Eurocan Pulp & Paper Co. as a financial manager until his retirement in 1998.
Tullis’ passion was a deep sense of family; his wife and his grand children. He loved many and was loved by many in return. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.
