Said “Goodbye” on Friday June 24, 2022 to his wife Sonja, children Ken, Wendy and Lori Anne and their families and to so many dear friends. He will be greatly missed by all.

He will be remembered for his winning smile and sparkling blue eyes; positive outlook; his willingness to help his neighbours with snow shoveling, grass cutting and gardening advice. His leadership qualities were gifts he shared in business, volunteer work and with his devoted family.

Bill had a wonderful singing voice and his theme song for his children, grandchildren and great granddaughter was “You Are My Sunshine”. He would sing them to sleep or burst into song on car trips.

The family would like to thank the oncology staff at RVH and the many caregivers at Hospice Simcoe. A special thanks to Dr. Lai who walked with him these many months, always ready to answer questions, discuss vital concerns and offer his support.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at Westside Evangelical Lutheran Church, 510 Ferndale Drive North, Barrie on Saturday, July 2 with Visitation at 1:00 p.m. and Service at 2:00 p.m.  followed by a “reception party” on church lawn.

Donations may be made to Westside Evangelical Lutheran Church OR Redwood Park Communities Inc ., 36 Toronto Street, Barrie, L4N 1T9

Words of condolence may be left for the family at
