DUNNE, William Terrence: November 8, 1936 -  December 29, 1999

William Terrence Dunne, 63, of Grande Prairie
   William Terrence Dunne, known to many as Bill, Billy and Willy T, known to a few as Dad and Grandpa and to one as husband, passed away on December 29, 1999. His passing was sudden and has been felt by many in this community. Bill is survived by his wife of 37 years, Bev and his three children, Terrence, Steven (and Karyn Lux), Donna (and Terrence de Bruin) and his two beautiful granddaughters Jessica and Rebecca Dunne.
   Bill was predeceased by his daughter, Cheryl Lynn, his father, Patrick Joseph, his mother, Irene Mae, and his father-in-law, Charles E. Ford. In 1936, Bill was born in Castor, Alberta, and spent the first 17 years of his life there. He then attended the University of Alberta and graduated with a Junior E. in 1954. After teaching for four years in Halkirk, Red Deer and Tarrington, he returned to U of A for his Bachelor of Physical Education which he  received in 1962. Before moving to Grande Prairie in 1968, Bill taught in Bentley, Innisfail, and Trochu. During his 31 years in Grande Prairie, Bill, serving in many different roles (teacher, administrator, mentor, and friend) has touched the lives of thousands. Rarely did a day go by without a former student stopping him in the mall or on the street saying, "Hey. Mr. Dunne, do you remember me?"
   The surprising thing was that most often Bill did remember and could identify the year that that student entered his class. People who know Bill, would not attribute this ability to a great memory (he didn't go anywhere without his day-timer) bur rather to his love for his career and the students in his care. Bill lived for two things, his family and his students.
   After three years of Central Office service with the Catholic School District, he returned to enjoy being principal and teacher because it allowed him to focus on the real reason for reaching, his students. After retiring from teaching in 1992, "Billy" joined the Hi-Tech team. There, his hobby became his new career and his interest in Apple computers blossomed. The Mac symbol became synonymous with Billy and people who know him will remember him every time they see the multi-coloured apple. His retirement also allowed time for Bill to get involved as trustee for the Catholic School District and spend time at Five Star Golf course where he, Bev and Nordic  began a cabin life with many new friends.
   Prayer services for Bill will be held on Sunday, January 2, 2000 with viewing from 7 p.m. and service to begin at 7:30 p.m. at Oliver's Grande Prairie Funeral Chapel (10005-107 Ave.) Grande Prairie.
   Funeral will be held at St. Joseph Catholic Church (10113-103 Ave.) Grande Prairie on Monday, January 3, 2000 at 3 p.m. with Father Gerry Pettipas officiating.
