Description

Meg and Stan wish to extend an invitation to our home to celebrate the life and legacy of William Beckel.

Dr. William Edwin Beckel, B.A., M.S., Ph.D, died peacefully, at home at Maison Senior Living in West Vancouver, BC, on October 15, 2018 at the age of 92. William lived a long, adventure-filled life.

There are many in Ottawa who will remember him as President of Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario from 1979-89. His journey as life-long learner, scientist, educator, leader, husband, father and grandfather influenced those who came to know him for his loving, generous nature, epicurean savyness, music knowledge, his profound curiosity and his wit. He enthusiastically enjoyed his family, his friends, cooking, wine, cheese, music, hunting, and particularly skiing.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Whistler Search and Rescue.at: https://whistlersar.com/donate/

Please join us for a time of remembering William's impact on us all.

Sincerely,

Meg Beckel and Stan Harwood
