Bill was an avid horse enthusiast, devoting much of his spare time maintaining and enjoying the trails at the beloved hobby farm in Bruce County. He was a handy-man extraordinaire, often sharing his talents with family and friends. He enjoyed genealogy and loved to “rest his eyes” to the sounds of the Detroit Red Wings.
Bill worked his entire career with the Bank of Montreal, beginning in Kincardine. He held many different managerial positions with the bank throughout the years.
A private graveside service was held at the Kincardine Cemetery, with Rev. Rob Hiscox officiating.
