GALL, William Cameron (Cam)
Peacefully in his sleep, of old age, at 98, on Tuesday June 3, 2008. Eldest son of William Chalmers Gall and Edythe Cameron (nee Trebilcock) of Toronto. Loving husband to the late Eleanor Catherine (nee Meech). Much loved 'Dad' to his sons Harold (Nancy) and Cameron (Gail), 'Poppa' to his grandson Brendan and 'Grampa Cam' to Gail's children Kristin, Stephanie (Domenic), Eric, Brian and David. Cam is lovingly remembered by brother Murray, sister-in-law Ruth Gall and his many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his brothers George and Jack, sister Peg, and brothers and sisters- in-law Grace Gall, Athol Meech, Marion Meech, Len and Nina Meech and Harold and Dorothy Meech. Cam was a very kind and contented man who loved to spend time with his family at the 'Limberlost Cabin' in Muskoka and at 'Meech Haven' on Lake Scugog in the Kawarthas. Born and raised in Toronto, he attended Brown Public School and Upper Canada College. Along with his father and brother George, he owned and operated The Gall Lumber Company in Weston, Ontario. In keeping with his wishes, a family memorial gathering in celebration of Cam's life will be held. The family wishes to thank the very compassionate and caring staff of Sunrise of Unionville, Cam's 'Home' for the past four and one half years. If desired, memorial donations to The Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.
