William James Hopper

3/13/1966 - 1/28/2017

Obituary Overview

Eclectic Man


William James Hopper passed suddenly at his home in Lyndhurst, Ontario, on January 28, 2017. The youngest of five siblings, he predeceased Helen (John), Mary, Tom (Michelle), and John (Carrie) as well as his many nieces and nephews. He will be greatly missed by his treasured and loyal friend Crystal Hood and by his friends Art, Greg, Peter, Chris, Tea and many others.
William had eclectic work history ranging from stand-up comic, actor, gravestone chiseler, barista to his proudest profession as a Canadian author. His published works include Through an Angel’s Eye and The Heathen’s Guide to World Religions. The latter was translated into Italian and eventually banned by the Vatican, which amused Will to no end.
A celebration of life is scheduled for Saturday, February 11, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at Robert Reid Funeral Home at 309 Johnson Street, Kingston, Ontario. Donations to Sweet's Corners Public School will be welcomed.
