Sergeant (Ret’d) William (Bill) George Haig, CD ATIS TECH – 00109

14 Jun 22

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of William George Haig, CD, Sgt (Ret’d) RCAF on June 14, 2022 .

Predeceased by his son Alexander. Beloved son of Gorden Douglas and Mary Jane (Hocking). Survived by his loving wife Vickie and Sister Kathleen Jensen (Mark). Sadly missed by his aunts, Kathleen Gamble, Georgia Gull (Richard Smith) Dianna Martin (Fernand), Uncle James Hocking, niece, Darcy and nephew Kevin Jensen, his cousins and his many friends. Bill’s constant companion was his dog “Tyson”. His extended family included Kate (Averie and Colton), Danny and Thomas (Melanie), Christopher, Bill and Jeanine, Steven and Genene, Tim, Steve and Barb. Bill is also lovingly remembered by Vivianne, Marcia, Jasmine, Chloe and Hannah. 

He enjoyed his motorcycles and drifting down the Rideau in his boat. A fish or two was always a bonus. Bill believed a bad day on the range was better than a great day at work, not that there was ever a bad day at the Stittsville Shooting Club. 

Bill served under the “Jimmy cap badge” from 1986 through to 2017, though finishing his career in uniform in 2017 he continued to serve our country. Changing his uniform for more comfortable clothes and growing a beard, fitting of ZZ Top, he carried on in his role as the 7 Comm Gp J6 Core Services – PKI LCSM in Ottawa as an acting CS3. Bill touched many lives and would always be there to give you the shirt off of his back. Interment has taken place at the National Military Cemetery of the Canadian Forces, located at Beechwood Cemetery.
