He is survived by his wife, Sharon (Truax), and his daughters Cheryl (Michael) Gemmell, and Karen (Dat Pham) and by his grandchildren, Meredith, Henry, and Gracie, who he asked after every day. 

There will be an empty chair at the card table as he is missed by brothers Mike (Pat), Phil (Sandra) and Doug (Penny).

Spending his early years in Ancaster and Dundas, he raised his family in east Hamilton before heading to Markstay, ON.  Retiring to Dunnville and returning to Hamilton to be with Sharon when her care needs changed.

Bill was a life-long “do-it-yourselfer” He will be remembered for his gift with numbers as a bookkeeper, property manager, and tavern owner.

We know Bill has found a place to cast his line while he waits for the fish to bite.

Family and friends are asked to honour Bill’s memory with donations to the Alzheimer Society of Canada.
