Lundy possible Jackson connection

I located my paternal grandfather's death notice and will through the Victoria Archives a number of years ago...William Maxwell Lundy was born around 1894 in Toronto and died in Victoria in September 1969. He was a dental 'mechanic' and after serving in WW#1 -possibly in the cyle unit, he remained in Toronto area for about 20 years and then moved to BC. Information I have found suggests that he was in the Prov of BC for at least 20 years possibly more and upon his death left everything to his friend Robert Jackson. His death notice in the local paper mentions he left behind many friends and cousins in Canada and United States but no mention of my dad or grandma. I have uncovered info which shows they were only married months before my dad was born and when William signed up for the Army a few months later he strangely lists himself as single. His body was supposedly cremated but I contacted the name listed in his obit notice who had no record of really curious about what happened to this man and what his life in BC was like. The story I was told my my mother was that he was 'shell shocked' after the war and was 'never the same' but my grandma once told me that bruises in a relationship sometimes seemed like they would be easier to deal with...not that I condone any of it but I can only guess what kind of life she must have had a single mom in 1917---I was one in 73 and it wasn't pleasant. I would dearly love to know if anyone has any info on this man and his life.
