May 18, 1943 - April 16, 2023

With heavy hearts, we announce Bill passed away peacefully surrounded by family.

Bill was predeceased by his parents, Clifford and Queenie and his beloved life partner, Donna.

He leaves to mourn his sister Lynne (Jim) in Boise, Idaho; nieces and nephew, Kari (Phil), Kevin (Mindy) and Jennifer (Ricky); his children, Brad (Marie), Tracey (Kevin); grandchildren, Tyson (Courtney), Jesse (Ashley), Braedyn; great-grandchildren, Lincoln and Mason; special friends, George, Laurie, Dennis, Sylvia; and many others.

Bill spent a long career in the moving business. Bill enjoyed many years at their trailer in West Hawk Lake, making many lifelong friends. He had a great love for the outdoors, fishing, camping and gardening. He loved to spend time with his family and friends. He was well-known for a sense of humour, even at inappropriate times.

The family wish to thank the staff at Seven Oaks General Hospital for their care and compassion provided to Bill in his final days.

Bill will be greatly missed by all.

At Bill’s request, there will be no service. In his memory, family will have a meal of pickerel and a cold beer. (Sorry you have to miss it, Dad!)

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Bill was a fun loving guy. The parties him and Donna would have at Westhawk lake can only leave wonderful great memories to anyone that knew the two of them. He was a character whispering Pines was never the same. I can just see Bill and Doug (Patterson meeting at them pearly gates0 And all those who are gone (but not forgotten) will have a great welcome to heaven Bill. The first soul to meet you would be Donna your true soul mate. Life was never the same for you after she passed. I send my sympathy to Bills family May he rest in peace ♥️♥️♥️♥️ - Posted by: Carole Patterson (Friend) on: Apr 22, 2023
