Biographical Comments
Bill served proudly on the Calgary Fire Department … a job he always loved, for 25 years, beginning as a rookie, going through the ranks and retiring as Deputy Chief. Bill was a good-natured man of great intelligence, strength and caring, and always more than ready to lend a hand. He loved his family with a passion and was always non-judgmental. He always said, “Everybody does the best they can.” He did his best to the end and we were blessed to have him as long as we did.
(Submitted by the Beattie Family for the 2006 Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial)
