Willis  Dryburgh

Obituary of Willis Frederick Dryburgh


Willis was born in Ottawa and attended Ottawa Technical High School. He married his sweetheart, Suzanne on September 11, 1965. In his early career he worked as a driver for Pepsi. Then he spent a long career of 34 years with Sears, where he held several positions before he retired. Willis will be missed by his many friends at Pike Lake, the hunt camp and from all the gun shows he attended. Words can not express how much he was loved and how much he will be missed by all that knew him. Thank you to his family who stayed by his side to ensure he would not be alone. Thank you to the nurses on the second floor of The Almonte General Hospital who made Willis’s last 3 days comfortable. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, there will be no funeral service or reception. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation in Willis’s name to the charity of your choice.


Dad’s Favorite Song


“You must remember this

A kiss is just a kiss

A sigh is just a sigh

The fundamental things apply

As time goes by”
