WILLIAM (BILL) DREW
June 8, 1946 – Nov. 13, 2021
William (Bill) Edwin Loughman Drew of London (and formerly of Hanover and Kincardine) passed away at Victoria Hospital in London, Ontario on Nov. 13, 2021, at age 75.
Bill will be deeply missed by his beloved wife, Lorraine; and by his children: Christy (Kent), Jenny (Bill), Tara (Chris) and Michelle (Jared); his sister Susan (Darren) of Calgary.
Papa will also be missed by his eight grandchildren: Owen, Ezekiel, Justice, Tytus, Minka, Selah, Leah, and Flora, as well as by his nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his mother, Jeanne Drew of Kincardine.
Bill spent his youth in Kincardine, where he developed a passion for motorcycles and travelling North America. An unassuming man, he loved to play tricks and tell jokes. Bill began his career at Ontario Hydro when he was 29, the same year he became a Dad. Providing a stable home for his family was his number one priority. Bill and Lorraine spent 36 years together, and their family was his pride and joy. He was a kind and faithful man who loved the Lord deeply. In his retirement he enjoyed the simple routines of morning coffee, reading books, doing Sudoku puzzles, and spending time with family.
A celebration of Bill’s life took place in person and online from Hillside Church of London at 2 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 19, 2021.
