Obituary of Ged Willis

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Gerald “Ged” Willis, lifelong resident of Beaverlodge Alberta, on January 20, 2022, at the age of 74 years.

Ged was born on July 23, 1947 in Beaverlodge, Alberta to Walter and Marjorie Willis. He was the second child of four.

Ged was a hard-working man. He had great work ethic, he was always to the point and would call a spade “a spade”. Ged had a “we will get er’ done” attitude, and he never had any time to be sick.

Ged grew up in Beaverlodge and attended the high school in Beaverlodge. He worked on the family farm until 1978, and then was involved in a farming accident that made him unable to go back to work on the farm. He decided to go to Auctioneering School after his accident, and then he went to work on the oil rigs. He worked on the rigs for years, and in 1998 he started Willowview Auctions.

Ged was an avid curler and he exceled at the sport. He also belonged to the Elks Club and the Alberta Auctioneer Association.

Ged will be fondly remembered by his wife; Barbara Willis, his children; Derek Willis (Mona Calliou), Tammy Lowen (Roger Lowen), Geddie Willis and Sherri Babuik (Kevin Babuik), grandchildren; Courtney Belyan (Kyle Belyan), Levi Willis, Braiden Lowen (Alyssa Lowen), Daylen Lowen (Hope Mundle), Anson Babuik (Avery Weiss) and Kami-Anne Babuik, great-grandchildren; Ellie Belyan, Roe Belyan and Ryatt Lowen, brothers; Allan Willis and Dale Willis (Pat Willis), sister; Pamela Bressler (David Bressler), and many nieces and nephews.

Ged was predeceased by his daughter; Karman Willis, parents; Walter and Marjorie Willis, grandparents; Austin and Mary Willis, sister-in-law; Donna Willis, parents in law; Melvin and Louise Ferris, nephews; Tyler Tofteland, Chad Wells, and Ryan Ferris.
