April 2, 1948 – April 2, 2019
Bill was born in Sarnia, Ontario but grew up and went to school in Scarborough, Ontario. His happiest years were spent driving an 18 wheeler, both on highways and threading through the streets of Toronto.
In the late 1980’s, following a life changing accident he moved to Alberta to join his mother Ruth and his sister Sue. In 1994, he packed up again and moved with his mother, sister and her partner to the Burns Lake area where he spent his remaining years.
Bill’s life was not an easy one and throughout he faced many difficult challenges. However his beautiful gentle soul, his expression of true gratitude and his “positivity” touched the hearts of many.
He was predeceased by his father Ronald. He is survived by his son Ronald, wife Carol and granddaughter Kayleigh in Oshawa, his mother Ruth, sister Sue and partner Al in Burns Lake and his niece Christina and husband Sean in Calgary.
Happy trucking Bill. Thank you for touching our hearts and souls. Forever in our hearts.
