He was predeceased by his mother, Mabel Johnson, step father, George Johnson, sister, Viola King, brothers, Gordon Stoughton, Alex Stoughton. Willard was a great Dad, Husband and Grandfather. He was an avid and talented athlete in his younger years. He loved the outdoors and taught all his family to respect nature and enjoy it. We spent many, many happy years at the family cottage. After retiring from Adams Mine we moved to Hope B.C. to be closer to all our children and grandchildren. He was much loved and will be greatly missed.

A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. Many thanks to Dr. Josh Greggain, the staff at the Murakami Clinic and the staff at the Fraser Canyon Hospital for your wonderful kindness and care. It was very appreciated. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Hope Food Bank.
