March 17, 1928 – December 11, 2014
Buss , William (“Bill”) Henry Patrick – passed away peacefully in his sleep on Thursday, December 11, 2014 in his 87th year. He has joined his wife Stephanie (‘Stella”) who passed away in 2010. Bill has been a life-long resident of Hamilton and retired from Canadian Liquid Air in 1993, after 26 years. Bill has always enjoyed life and in his past few years was passionate, to say the least, in trying to conquer the slot machines at the various casinos in the area. Bill is survived by his children Debbie Trebych, Cathy Bent, Brad Buss and David Buss. He is a proud grandfather of Todd, Geoff, Mellisa, Alicia, Connor, Harrison, Jesse and Jacob. In addition he is a great- grandfather for Storm, Autum, Nathalie, Lucas, Alex and James. Survived by his brother Doug Buss, his sister Elsie Robinson and predeceased by his sister Helen Garton. Bill and Stella have left an amazing legacy of family to continue the next generations and were very proud of all the kids. As we all know, Bill was not a fan of formality and sadness. As such he has been cremated and no formal service will be held. He asked for a celebration of life to be held. As such we invite all family and friends to join us to share a drink and a fun story to celebrate his life. The event will be held on Friday, December 19, 2014 from 4pm to 7pm at Flamboro Downs, 967 Highway #5 Dundas, upstairs in the Confederation Room. He will be thrilled that you joined us and even more if you win on one of his favorite slot machines. Dress is casual and only happy memories please.
Our condolences go out to all the children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. We had such a good visit on the Monday before Bill passed away. We will miss you Bill.
With much love Doug and Leona
To Brad and Family
My deepest sympathies to all of you with the loss of your father/grandfather. I noticed the listing in The Spec as your celebration of life was taking place. What a wonderful forum to celebrate his life. It is a difficult time of the year to lose someone close to you. My thoughts are with all of you.
