March 2, 1932 – July 31, 2013
Bill passed peacefully on July 31, 2013 with his family by his side following a short illness. He was 81 years old. Bill was born in Gourock, Scotland and lived in Great Britain before immigrating with his family to Canada in 1975. He moved to Elkford in 1978.
Bill will be deeply missed by Eileen, his wife of 47 years, his children Sue (Kelvin) Huisman, Duncan (Deanna) McCormick, and Stuart (Brenda) McCormick, and his grandchildren Jesse and Cassidy Huisman and Gavin and Jacob McCormick as well as many friends in both Canada and Great Britain and relatives in Scotland and England.
Bill was a hardworking and fun loving family man who always had time for his family and friends. No matter which project he was working on there was always time to ‘put the kettle on’ for a visit. His invaluable knowledge of mechanics was passed on to many and will continue on through generations to come.
