It’s a sad time at the OCC. A long time member and big supporter of the OCC has passed away.
Bill Peel lost his battle with Cancer on August 16th, 2018.
Bill had joined the OCC in 2010 and over the years was involved in many ways in the growth of the club as a Program Director, Vice President and his involvement in the Annual Salon and PhotoEx Committee. He was always a source of ideas of how to get all the members involved in with the outings, workshops, Explora groups and club events. He was proud to have been recently accredited as a GTCCC Photo Judge.
His passion for travel and photography was only exceeded by his curiosity to know and learn about everyone he met.
At this time, his family is holding a private service in his honour. We will forward you details on an public service as they become available.

Bill leaves us with these departing words:
“Time to say goodbye. I passed away peacefully with my close family beside me. My next journey has begun. Sure hope they have bridge cards. Love to you all. Cheers Bill.”
