Deeply missed by his beloved wife, Lorraine; his children, Christy (Kent), Jenny (Bill), Tara (Chris) and Michelle (Jared); and 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 his nieces and nephews. 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. He 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. Bill 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 at Hillside Church, London, Nov. 19, 2021. On-line condolences may be made to Mount Pleasant Cemetery, London;
