Bill Camilli “Whiskey Pig” passed away at the Elk Valley Hospital on October 20, 2011 at the age of 64 years. He was born in Nordegg, Alberta on April 27, 1947 to parents Louis and Shirley Camilli.
Bill is survived by three daughters: Deana Camilli (John Hutchinson) with children Derek, Amanda and Lisa of Fernie, Lisa (Ty) Branscome with children Johnathan, Travis and Gerald of Eureka, MT and Johna (Steve) Nelson with their daughter Elizabeth of Columbus, MT, and his sisters Sherry Camilli (Tom Krawchuk), Louise (Hans) Bramer, Mickey (Dave) Drake and Ruth Dukart as well as several nieces and nephews.
Bill lived his life with zest & tenacity, enjoying time spent amongst family and friends. Laid back and likeable, Bill found conversation easy. It didn’t matter if you were one of his old buddies or his newest acquaintance, Bill could be very engaging. With a passion for motorbikes, “Whiskey Pig” loved nothing more than cruising the highways on his Harley, truly embracing the Harley Davidson motto “Ride to Live, Live to Ride”. A loving father, grandfather, neighbor and friend, Bill will be sadly missed but never forgotten.
