Word has reached Jobber Nation of the sudden but peaceful passing of Bill Hamson September 16, 2019.
Born and raised in Nelson, BC, Bill moved his family to North Vancouver in 1971, where he established and led the helm of the highly successful North Shore Parts until his retirement twelve years ago.
Bill was an avid golfer, successful businessman, loyal friend and, above all, a devoted husband and father.
Bill will be lovingly remembered and forever missed by his wife Bonnie, children Shari, Sandi and Ian (Leslie), and grandchildren Danielle (Tyler), Jordan, Lindsay, Zachary, Samantha, Ryan, Nicholas and Logan, great grandchildren Lily and Emma, and many relatives and friends.
Bill was very active in the automotive industry, serving as the founding father and president of Allied Wholesale Distributors for many years.
He enjoyed returning to Nelson often to see his parents (Eva and Albert Hamson, deceased), and to appreciate the beach, golf, and his dear friends there. Bill also reveled in his and Bonnie’s snowbird home in Palm Desert, where their countless friends would often stop by to share in their generosity and laughter.
Deepest thanks to Dr Biskupska, Dr Bains, and Dr Doe for their incredible support and treatment, and to the doctors and nurses at Lions Gate Hospital Palliative Care.
Bill’s life will be celebrated on October 3, 2019 at 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at Seymour Golf and Country Club, 3723 Mt Seymour Parkway, North Vancouver. In lieu of flowers, please consider a charitable donation to the Osprey Community Foundation, B-8 625 Front Street, Nelson, BC V1L 4B6, ospreycommunityfoundation.ca.
