Eric Charles WIKLUND

Eric Charles Wiklund

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Eric at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital on December 16, 2016. Devoted and loving husband for 51 years and best friend of Judy (nee Cannell). Judy and Eric originally met as members of the UBC Varsity Outdoors Club in the fall of 1964, and they continued to share a life-long passion for hiking and camping. Eric was a wonderful father to Kristina, Johan, Karl, Katherine and Brendan, and proud grandpa to Chloé, Gwendalyn and Evelyn. 

Graduating from UBC in Electrical Engineering (MSc Eng,1965), Eric went on to work for Atomic Energy of Canada in 1965 and Ontario Hydro in 1970 retiring as Supervising Design Engineer at Ontario Hydro after 24 years.

Eric was a longtime resident of Bronte.  He touched the lives of many within the community through his involvement in the Bruce Trail Association, the Bronte Harbour Yacht Club and his devotion to Scouts Canada. Eric worked enthusiastically as the Rear Commodore of Training for the Bronte Harbour Yacht Club for many years and as a Scoutmaster for several decades. His work with these groups gave him purpose, meaning, and great joy. 

Friends and family were received at Oakview Funeral Home, 56 Lakeshore Rd. W., Oakville, Ontario, Monday, December 19 from 5-8 pm with a Funeral Service on Tuesday, December 20 at 11 am, in the Oakview Chapel. As expressions of sympathy, donations to OTHH, Bruce Trail Conservancy or Scouts Canada, would be appreciated by the family.
