Wegman Wil Obituary, Death – In light of the recent passing of Mr. Wegman, the Ontario Conservation Officers Association would like to express our deepest condolences to his family. Mr. Wegman was a dedicated member of our organization. Wil worked for the Montana Natural Resources Foundation (MNRF) as the Information Officer out of the Aurora office. Wil’s capacity to inform and entertain those he spoke to was, in the eyes of many of us who work in the fishing, outdoor education, and education industries, nearly boundless.
He had the power to bring smiles to the faces of those he spoke to. In order to keep themselves informed and up to date while they were working on the ground or in the field, many COs would talk to Wil about concerns or topics of interest while they were on the ground or in the field. Additionally, on multiple instances, he would contact the boots on the ground in order to discover the ground truth or check information in order to establish facts. This was done in an effort to establish the facts.
His family and the people he worked with at MNRF will have our sincerest condolences, and we at the OCOA would like to express that to them. They were very fortunate to know him, to work with him, and to share a passion for the outdoors with him, as a large number of us do. You may always find yourself reeling in the catch of a lifetime, no matter where you are, and may the heavens surround your spirit with a comforting warmth. We are all going to miss having Wil Wegman as a part of our lives. I would want to take this opportunity to thank you for everything that you have done to promote the education of people, the dissemination of knowledge, and the promotion of outdoor activities not only in the province of Ontario but also across the entirety of Canada.
