The William A. (Bill) Davis Bursary

William (Bill) A. Davis grew up poor, in a tiny dirt floor school house; the only one to go to University. That is why he is so thankful to Queen's for his education certainly changed his life and lifestyle. He spent his career with Ontario Hydro, retiring when he was 55 to enjoy that which truly made him happy: travel, curling and lawn bowling. He was 76 at his passing, at the beginning stages of alzeihmers, living at home alone. He passed away in his home, and was buried in a tiny northern Ontario cemetery with his parents.

 It was my father's bequest to have a fund set up in his memory in Electrical and Applied Science. My father was very proud of earning his degree from Queen's University and he would be proud to know that his fund will continue to help a number of students to pursue their dreams of becoming Electrical Engineers. On behalf of my father, I would like to wish every student who has received financial support from this fund, continued success in their studies.
