Friend of the the BMRA – Strath Wilson Passing

Dear Neighbours and Friends,

It is with profound sadness that we write to inform you of the passing of our dear husband and Dad, Strathearn (Strath) Wilson, on September 14, 2017.

He had been undergoing treatment for colon cancer since March this year.  After 10 chemo treatments (and only 2 remaining), he was feeling positive enough to be planning for the next ski season, and felt more energetic than he had in months.  Unfortunately, we suddenly lost him before any of us expected.  He will be so very missed.

During this past summer, we spoke often of happier days – skiing and his other outdoor pursuits around Blue Mountains, the escarpment, and  Georgian Bay.  He was sorry to have to give up cycling and kayaking and taking upon the challenges of “progress” in Price’s subdivision. Although he wasn’t writing or reading emails as often, do know that friends and neighbours were in his thoughts; he was hoping everybody was enjoying life and feeling well.

We apologize for delay in this notification, but a severe storm on Sept 19 took out our Martin Grove phone line for an extended period.  Fortunately, we are now cabled with a new high-speed fibre line so we can finally be reached by fast (and picture-friendly) email .

Please pass this notification along to whomever you feel should know, or pass back their current email to us and we shall strive to connect with them as soon as possible.

As per Strath’s wishes, a private cremation has already taken place.  We are planning an upcoming Celebration of his Life, so if you have any photos, thoughts or memories you’d like to share, we sure would love to receive them.


Anne Wilson, Julia (Abel) and Morag (Graham)
