November 17, 1926 – December 8, 2021
It is with profound sadness that the family announces the passing of Bill at St. Paul’s Hospital. He is survived by his daughter Brenda (Jeff) Miller; daughter-in-law Trudi, grandchildren Jillian (Travis) Sparrow and Brett Miller; great-granddaughters Elle and Maeve Sparrow; step-granddaughters Megan (Trevor) Gerwing and Amanda (Philip) Caddel and their families; brothers Joe and Metro (Gloria); as well as many nieces, nephews, and other family members. He was predeceased by his wife Helen; his son Richard; parents Tom and Annie; in-laws Stanislaw and Eva Poniatowski; sisters Mary (Fred) and Lena (Sam); brothers Alex (Annie), Walter, and John. Anyone who knew Bill knew he loved to visit, always had a joke to share, and didn’t hesitate to poke fun. He could light up a room and bring joy and humour to all those around him.
