Peacefully entered into rest at the Brockville General Hospital on January 12th, in his 83rd year. Beloved husband of Carroll Shannon for 53 years and eldest son of the late Gordon and Ruth Hatfield. Loving father of David (Anne Edgar), Cathy (Bob Race) and Timothy (Angie Kruize). Dear grandfather of Cooper and Davis Hatfield; Emma and Jack Wilson; Wyatt Hatfield. Survived by siblings Douglas (June) and Margaret. Predeceased by brothers Thomas and Donald (Anne).

After attending Royal Roads, Royal Military College and the University of Alberta, he enjoyed a 36 year engineering career at DuPont Maitland. Wilsie will be forever remembered for his love of flying planes, amateur woodworking, community theatre and his many contributions to the community including as Chairman of the YMCA, VP of the Brockville Chamber of Commerce, Chairman of both St. Lawrence College and St. Vincent de Paul Hospital and as a long time member of the Brockville General Hospital Board of Governors. He was very proud of being named Brockville’s “Citizen of the Year” in 1993.

At Wilsie’s request there will be no visitation or funeral service. A private family burial will occur at a later date. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the charity of your choice will be gratefully acknowledged. Arrangements entrusted to the Irvine Funeral Home and Chapel, 4 James St. E, Brockville.

I will always remember conversing with Wilsie over the years. He had many interests and was a knowledgeable soul.
He always had the ability to make people comfortable in his presence. I am so sorry to hear of your loss Carroll.

Our hearts and prayers go out to Carroll and family. He will be remembered as a true friend and a sincere gentleman who gained the trust and respect of all who worked with him. It is not surprising that he gave tireless of his time to help others. Wilsie will remain forever in our hearts.

A Great Gentleman with a Great Sense of Humour. In a Theatre Guild dinner production, he portrayed my Husband (even though my character was after another man).
Sincerest Condolences to All the Family of Wilsie.
