August 30, 1950 – April 9, 2021
It is with the heaviest of hearts we share that Bill, a loving husband, father, and grandfather, passed away in his home surrounded by his adoring family and dear friends at the age of 70 years after a short battle with cancer.
He will forever be lovingly remembered by his wife Trina, his son Paul, his daughters Rachel and Ashley (Michael) and grandchildren Everly and Liam. Bill was predeceased by his son Robert, father Paul, mother Vera, and brothers Frank and Junior.
Bill was a self taught businessman and entrepreneur who, with years of patience, perseverance and hard work, built a company and a brand which brought him a great sense of immense pride and accomplishment. He was held in high regard by his business colleagues for being honest, energetic and sincere.
Although his business was his first love, he thoroughly enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He could light up a room the minute he walked in and everyone couldn’t wait to hear what new and exciting adventure he might speak of, or lend his sound advice that one can only give with a lifetime of experience. He loved life in every aspect and his passion to always live it to the fullest was admirable.
He was a car and vintage motorcycle enthusiast who could make even the uninterested fascinated with his engaging and animated personality. He was indeed, a man with deep convictions, and never failed to impress us with his abounding wisdom.
For his family, friends and colleagues, there will forever be a giant chasm that will never be filled in his absence for his presence had been commanding and all encompassing. We will forever miss him, and his infectious laugh, eternally.
As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Bill to the Canadian Cancer Society.
