William Neil Wildman - May 17, 1931 - August 12, 2018
Dear Family, Friends and Neighbours,
Last night, William N. Wildman passed quietly at his home in Consejo Shores, Belize. Mr. Bill, as he was affectionately known, was a kind and gentle man who saw the light in every person whose life he touched. He loved the portrayal of Don Quixote, for his indomitable spirit and eternal struggle to find goodness in the world. Mr. Bill took the journey of life with an open heart, striving to live up to the vision of what a man could be and what our world could become.
A British/Canadian/Belizean real estate extraordinaire, land surveyor, developer, adventurer, and romantic swashbuckler, Mr. Bill brought his lust for life to the far corners of the world. He became a "larger than life" hero who dreamed the impossible dream and had the will to enjoy life's journey. One of the achievements that he was most passionate about was his life-long work on developing Consejo Shores, which became the most reputable community in Belize - a 50-year effort of vision,
determination and incredible foresight.
Not everyone has the qualities to become amazing. Most of us are ordinary people living life in an ordinary way. Yet, when a person steps up and finds that stairway to heavenly bliss... they are seen as shining beacons. May we always remember Mr. Bill as the quirky, charming, lovely and elegant man that he was. May the light of the world crown him in glory and carry him to the stars.
You can shed tears that he is gone
Or you can smile because he has lived
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left
Mr. Bill was well-loved and remembered by many. At his request, we will not be holding a memorial. Please remember him as you wish.
