Public Condolences

Our condolences to all of Will's remaining family and his step family. Will and Marianne were good friends of ours for many years. We enjoyed many get togethers, but one favourite of ours was meeting for dinner at the Chinese restaurant in Walkerton, where Will, in character, would order 2 dozen wings !! No matter what the conversation was about, Will always had a story to tell , be it about the numerous places he had lived across the country, about his security and fire department and car sales and other jobs, and about the sports he followed and loved - golf, football, and others. He had a great memory for details. He loved the visits he and Marianne took to the Civil War regions in the USA. Will was also Bob's main golf partner for the last 20 years, and right to our last game in 2022, he was able to beat Bob handily - every drive down the middle of the fairway. Will's beer had to be a Budweiser, but he also enjoyed a glass of the best cognac. We will miss Will a lot.

Will was a ray of light in our lives, greeting me each day with a warm hug and a joke that never failed to brighten my day. Our time together at Hudson's forged a bond that remained strong, even when I choose a new career path we always stayed intouch. His memory will forever hold a special place in my heart. My sincerest condolences go out to all who loved him.

We wish to extend our sympathy to all with Will's passing. He was such charming gentleman. Just a joy to have a conversation with as we have known him for probably thirty years.
