William George Nunn

2 April , 19307 May , 2019

This past May 7, 2019, William - George Nunn passed away in a quiet hospital bed, after struggling with cancer for over 2 years. He was 89 years old. Perhaps he is not recognized or remembered by the new generation of actors of Canada, but truth is he was one of the first members of UBCP, or as he would call it, "his Union". I admired his bright, beautiful mind, his wit, his generous heart and creativity, his sense of justice and his unbeatable sense of humor. Of course, my admiration was biased by my love for him. The only way I can think of honoring his memory is with words, in the language of poetry, the one thing he never stopped producing and loving. Allow me please, to share with you a short poem I wrote for him.

"My love of two centuries" Written for William Nunn, with love Militza Ventura 11/02/2015

A well kept mystery Deep inside me As treasure I keep Where no one but you can, if you would, Seek to reach

I have a riddle for the wise A riddle for lovers An enigma only I Can answer right

My love of two centuries Trespassed the gates that break time apart A breach brought together By an ageless man

Man of two centuries With youth in his heart Strong as young stallions With the wisdom of sages Hidden in his hair

Ageless from beginning Older than younger Growing too fast. Now, younger than older walking slower At the pace of time

A man of two centuries He is Started in the past And exists today. ---*---

And now, William is gone.
