Obituary for William (Bubba) Van Loon

Heartland Funeral Home
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of William Van Loon on Saturday, May 15, 2021, at the age of 62.

Bubba was born on April 15, 1959, at Blairmore, to Benjamin (Buddy) and Edith Van Loon.

He was “one of a kind.” Everyone that knew him fell in love with his humour and caring personality. Bill was a hard worker, and the first to help someone in need.

He loved his family and friends dearly.

Bill will be remembered by his wife, Beverly-Ann Smith; his four children, Shelly Van Loon, Billy Van Loon, Hailey Van Loon (Tanner) and Reid Mosby (Olivia); his three grandchildren, Jaycee (Colten), Rowdy and Tryan Van Loon; and his brother George (Randy) Van Loon. He also had numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Bill was predeceased by his parents, Buddy and Edith Van Loon; his sisters, Mary-Ann Harris, Doris Van Loon and Amber Van Loon; and his brother Lee Van Loon.

If desired, memorial donations in Bill’s honour may be made directly to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 100, 119 14th St. N.W., Calgary, AB, T2N 1Z6; or to the Arthritis Society, 393 University Ave., Suite 1700, Toronto, ON, M5G 1E6.
