Jarrett Richard (Dick) Williams
September 12, 1925 – August 17, 2014
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jarrett Richard (Dick) on August 17, 2014. Dick is survived by his loving wife of 59 years Ruane and his children Teresa (Dave) Mary, Shawn (Tarja) Paula (Bob), Tom, Malcolm (Nicole), Monica, and Claire (Vernon) and his fourteen grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Dick was born in Vancouver, BC growing up in Ladysmith, BC then relocating to Vancouver where he attended Vancouver College and graduated from Lord Byng high school. Dicks passion for radios and avionics led him to run a successful business as Williams Aviation Radio and Electric at Vancouver Airport South for approximately 30 years. From there he pursued a career in real estate until he eventually retired. Dick and Ruane enjoyed their retirement in Saltspring Island for the past 16 years and had recently returned back to the Lower Mainland. A memorial mass was held at Sacred Heart Church in Ladner, BC 3900 Arthur Drive on Friday August 22, 2014 at 11am. In lieu of flowers a donation can be made to the BC Epilepsy Society.
