In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of William “Bill” can be made to the University Hospital Kingston Foundation 55 Rideau Street , Suite #4 Kingston, Ontario K7K 2Z8 , KGH Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario. During his working career, Bill reinvented himself many times. He was employed as salesman for many years at a local radio station, a partner in a small business, a teacher at St. Lawrence College, sat as a member on the Board of Referees, an Investment Advisor and in retirement worked as Chief Proctor at Queen’s University. He was a past President of the Chamber of Commerce, an active member for many years with the local provincial PC party and in the past was an active participant in the Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs.
Bill enjoyed his retirement while his health was good and travelled with Raili on many cruises and vacations. He loved the game of golf, which he continued to play until this past summer and was enthusiastic about perfecting his skills.
