June 13, 1939 - October 16, 2013
Bill passed away on a sunny, warm day at about 1.30 pm after a lengthy battle with Parkinson’s Disease at Mackenzie Place in Newmarket, Ontario where he had been a resident for almost 1 year. Prior to that he lived with us on our farm in Schomberg for almost 5 years. Prior to that he lived in Newmarket with our mom who passed away on January 25, 2005. During our mom’s final years Bill took care of her with the greatest of love and patience. He never asked for a helping hand and was always the first one to offer a helping hand. He was a great step father to us all and a wonderful grandpa. We are deeply saddened by his passing, however, we take great comfort knowing Bill and our mom are together in heaven.
