Anyone who knew Dad/Grandpa Bill, knew how much he loved life. He loved to socialize and always enjoyed meeting new people, whether in the market, gardening or while he had his old-fashioned BBQ catering. He loved to tell a story and liked to say if “I can’t dazzle them with brilliance, I will baffle them with bull.” He loved spending time fishing with his grandkids. He enjoyed his winters in Florida and his summers at the lake. “We love you Dad and will miss you always.”
Cremation has taken place and a private celebration of life will be at a later date. If you wish to make a donation in Bill’s memory, the family asks you to consider the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
Arrangements have been left in the compassionate care of SMITH-LeROY FUNERAL HOME, 69 Wellington St. North, Woodstock, On (519-537-3611). Personal condolences may be sent at www.smithleroy.com
