It is with great sadness that the family of Bill Walker announces his passing at home with family present on Tuesday, January 24, 2017. Predeceased by Ruth, the love of his life for 63 years. Memories of Bill will be treasured by his sons Rick (Rita), Barry (Wendy), and his “girls” Bonnie (Gerry) Henderson, Cheryl Power, and Cathy (Cliff) VonHausen. He loved to share special time and stories with his 8 grandchildren, Tanya, Hilary, Erin, Jenny, Meaghan, Stacia, Melissa, Kurt and 11 great grandchildren. They kept him young at heart! Bill had a quiet faith and a kindness for others. He enjoyed careers of leadership in the Canadian Military and Corrections Canada. In retirement, Bill travelled extensively and loved to golf and spend time with his family and friends. He was honoured to be an active member of Holy Name of Jesus Parish and a Grand Knight (Knights of Columbus).Many were touched by his love, friendship, and laughter. Family members are grateful for the compassionate care of Dr. Marcassa, the assistance of staff at Bryan’s Pharmacy, and Holy Name parishioners who helped Dad navigate his final years. We celebrate his full and generous life and are consoled that he has found rest and peace.
