Carole Parker (filker, wife of Bill Laubenheimer, also a filker) posted
on Wednesday afternoon: “Hubby in St. Boniface hospital.”
I emailed her, and she replied, “Bill died today in Winnipeg. Yes, you
can tell Barry.
You can tell others as well, but I ask that no medical information be on
“It was unexpected and without warning.
“We were about to order brunch when he had a heart attack.
Fortunately, Bill did not die in the restaurant.
“The hospital is the region’s heart specialty hospital, so he was in
good care. His body had a cascade of stuff happen, and the medical team
did their best.”
Lee Comment: I am stunned by this news. He looked young
(well, younger than Barry and me) and healthy and not overweight,
and I expected him to outlive me by a couple of decades.
