Bill, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother, passed away on March 16th, 2023, at the Dorothy Lea Hospice after a brief battle with brain cancer. He was 69 years old. Born on May 19, 1953, in Toronto, Bill grew up alongside his brother Johnny and his sister Vicky, who preceded him in death. Bill faced the tragic loss of his daughter to cancer in 2022 but is survived by his two granddaughters.
Bill found love and companionship in Cindy Tindale, whom he married in 2014. They shared a joyous life until his passing. Bill wrote poetry and enjoyed playing slide guitar, immersing himself in the blues. One of his greatest achievements was assisting in the writing of a book on Mariposa. Bill cherished his family and kept in close touch with his cousins and other relatives. A devoted Christian, Bill found purpose in serving his church when called upon. He had a kind, gentle soul and a great sense of humour that endeared him to all who knew him. Bill will be deeply missed but forever remembered with love.
The family asks that donations be made to the Dorothy Lea Hospice in Etobicoke in lieu of flowers.
