Passed away peacefully on Wednesday, September 6th, 2017, at the Stedman Community Hospice Hankinson House, in his 92nd year. Beloved husband of the late Marion Reeder for over 61 years. Much loved father of Catherine (Ron) Orange. Dear papa of Kendra (Shane) Woltz and Bryan Orange and great-grandfather of Veritie and Vercin Woltz. He will also be dearly missed by many friends. Special thanks to the staff of the Brantford General Hospital, Chartwell Tranquility Place, Stedman Community Hospice as well as the many caregivers for all their care and attention over the last years of Wilbur's life. At Wilbur's request cremation has taken place and private family services will be held at a later date. Donations in lieu of flowers to the Stedman Community Hospice or the War Amps would be greatly appreciated. A tree will be planted in memory of Wilbur in the Beckett-Glaves Memorial Forest.
"Wilbur would not want anyone to despair, instead to raise a glass to his memory and enjoy a toast to the beauty of life and all it has to offer."
