Bill grew up 5th generation in the Leonard/Navan area and had fond family memories of the farm life and family gatherings with many cousins and friends.

He attended Trinity Anglican Church with his family. Bill loved trikes and the farm, he was a motorcycle enthusiast and built many a trike in his day that took home ribbons that he proudly displayed.

He loved the wonderful staff at the Perley Rideau Veteran’s Health Centre Gatineau 2, who gave him such amazing care and kindness, especially Virginia his special care giver, Ayan, Milania, Marie, Aminata, Coreen, Bonnie, Gregory, Danielle and the wonderful Creative Arts team Annamarija, Ross and Gen, Andrea and Kelsey who played his favorite song on the guitar while he took his final journey. All these individuals whom he always shared his infectious smile with and affectionately called them all #1, individually of course. There were Countless others in this wonderful home that should be the gold standard for all Long-Term Care. We wish we could mention them all. A special thanks to Dr. McDonald for her patience and kindness to our family.
