Jeffrey Roy Williamson
February 12, 1981 – December 2, 2020
It is with heavy hearts that his family announce Jeffrey’s passing in hospital after a tragic fall in his home in Edmonton, AB. Jeff was born in Thunder Bay, ON, received an OAC diploma from Port Arthur Collegiate, a Certificate Welding Techniques and a Mechanical Engineering Technician Co-op Diploma from Confederation College before venturing forth to Alberta where he completed his Millwright-RED SEAL/diploma from Northern Alberta Institute of Technologies in Edmonton in 2010. Jeff did most of his millwright apprenticeship at Sunshine Village, Banff. Jeff was an employee of Umicore in Fort Saskatchewan, since 2014. He was also an active member of Millwrights Local 1460 and Unifor Local 530A, where he sat on the executive board.
Jeff loved the outdoors: gardening, fishing, camping, climbing, snowboarding and skiing. He was also a talented artist who dabbled in many mediums. One of his latest was fly tying which he became very skilled at. When not working, Jeff could be found in one of his favourite camping and fishing spots, enjoying the company of friends and family.
Jeff was predeceased by his Grandmothers Irene DeRozea and Agnes Williamson. He is survived by his parents Rosalind (Gary) Cano and Gordon (Lynn) Williamson; siblings Andrew (Amanda) Williamson, Erik (Nilima) Cano, Renee (Matt) MacNeil, Tom (Brandy) Woycheshin and Jason Woycheshin as well as numerous cherished family and friends.
Cremation has taken place in Edmonton. There will be no gathering at this time, but a Celebration of Life in Thunder Bay will take place at a later date when we can hug once again.
