Forever loved by his wife of almost 60 years Frances Eleanor Sharp nee Arber. Loved by his children always, Douglas (Barb) Katherine (John) and Suzanne (Mike). Known fondly as Papa and Grandpa by his grandchildren Maeve, Mason, Perrin, Meghan, Jackson and Logan.

Beloved big brother to Ellen Sharp-Roworth and friend to the late George Webster. Brother in law to Patricia Arber and the late Ross Arber and Mary Valdal and the late Ivan Valdal. Bill will also be missed by many nieces and nephews.

Bill will always be remembered as quite the handyman who spent all of his free time tinkering outside in his younger years listening to his favourite Johnny Cash songs. Mostly Bill will forever be remembered for the love he had for the love of his life Frannie and never leaving her side through her life long battle with Multiple Sclerosis.
