August 16, 1945 - June 1, 2023
We are so very sad to share that our beloved husband, dad, and grandpa has passed away.
Bill was born in Northampton, England and was the youngest of five siblings.
After moving to Canada in 1975, he opened one of the first neighborhood pubs in the province - The Witch of Endor Neighbourhood Pub in Maple Ridge (now Witchcraft), and then The Frog and Nightgown in Coquitlam from 1984 to 2004
He was absolutely devoted to his family, the most incredible husband, and a loving father and grandfather. Rosemary, his wife of 55 years, their daughter Helen (Mark), grandchildren Ryan and Jenna will forever cherish Bill's memory.
He will also be dearly missed by his sister Mary, brother Richard (Hazel), sister-in-law Celia (Les) and numerous nieces and nephews in the UK and Australia.
We want to say thank you to the amazing doctors and nurses at Ridge Meadows Hospital for taking such great care of Bill. Their kindness and dedication meant the world to us.
Bill did not want a funeral but a celebration of his life. This will be held in the summer.
If you would like to honour Bill's memory, we kindly ask if you could consider donating to the SPCA or the Canadian Cancer Society
