WILLIAM KENYON

WILLIAM KENYON After a brief illness, Bill passed away in his 98th year.

He worked for Canada Post sorting mail on the mail cars. After his retirement he went on to work in the mail room at the University of Winnipeg. Bill was an avid baseball and hockey fan, cheering for the New York Yankees in summer and the Montreal Canadiens in winter. As Bill requested there will be no formal service.
