355 William was a pilot in World War II. He then worked for an international aviation organization, based in Montreal, with responsibility for setting up airports around the world, He lived in Beaconsfield. He died of throat cancer. Moody McElrea told me that he was with the United Nations in Burma, laying out airfields.
His second name may be Gerald. (In fact, I have changed it from Gordon to Gerald.) If it is he who died on February 28, 1979, he died in Dollard des Ormeaux. In the Index des décès, his wife's last name is Gray. All to be verified. He may have two daughters. One of them may be Lynn Ellen who married Jaanus Roht in Ste. Anne on March 3, 1961. She may have been born in 1939.
Marjorie McElrea verified that he had two girls: Lynn and Valerie, and that Lynn had one boy. Therefore, the information in the above paragraph must be accurate.
