BILL LOCKETT, a compassionate and honourable man, passed away on Sunday, May 21, 2023 at the age of 66 years, with his beloved family by his side. 

Bill was born in Victoria, BC and raised in Invermere, BC. His journey led him to Alberta, where he pursued a career in Broadcast Engineering at SAIT in 1976. His dedication to his craft brought him to Lethbridge in 1978, where he became an integral part of the broadcasting community. For 34 years, Bill lent his skills to 1090 CHEC Radio and later to CISA-DT, now Global Lethbridge. 

Bill is predeceased by his father, David Lockett; and mother, Jean Lockett. He is survived by his loving wife, Susana; and three children: Monica (Joe) of Lethbridge, Ryan and Adrian both of Calgary. As well, his sister, Terry Lockett (Lou) of Vancouver; sister, Tracy Lockett of Vancouver; and brother, David (Pamela) Lockett of Calgary; and his nieces: Natasha, Kaitlin, Mackenzie, Meagan and Delainey. Not to be forgotten is his faithful dog, Lady, who became an inseparable part of his life nearly two years ago. 

Known for his remarkable ability to fix things and his generous nature, Bill touched the lives of many. He will be forever remembered for his kindness to others and his passion for travel, particularly to Mazatlán, Mexico, where he met Susy, the love of his life. 

During this time, expressions of sympathy and remembrance may be shared in any way that feels meaningful. Bill's legacy of compassion, thoughtfulness, and his unique blend of humor will live on in the hearts of those fortunate enough to have known and loved him. 

A Celebration of Life in honor of Bill will be held at a later date.
