After a fourteen year battle with cancer, Willy passed away peacefully at St. Boniface hospital.
Willy was predeceased by his son Harry.
Willy will be deeply missed by his loving wife Frida; son Jerry (Karin); grandchildren, Rhys, Delaney and Maddyx; stepchildren, Edgar, Nancy (Jeff) and Dominique; step-grandchildren, Jaymi (Kevin), Taylor (Douglas) and Kyler (Gavin); and step-great-grandchild Loukas.
In 1978 Willy opened Brunswick Autobody which he passionately operated until he happily handed the reins to his son in 2006.
Willy's passions were not limited to his business, he also loved family, music, his garden, flowers, and travelling.
The family would like to give a big thank you to all the doctors, nurses, and staff who cared for Willy.
