He is survived by his wife Cathy (Morrissey), his daughters Kim, Cindy (& Alex) Lolua, Tammy, Linda (& Don), Lisa (& Mark) Dorssers, son Jason (& Nicole), and grandchildren Natalie, Rachael, Nicole, Jason, and Owen. He’s predeceased by his siblings Leona, Elmer, Francis, Dorothy (Osmun), and Elizabeth (Fritz).
For almost his entire life, Bill lived on the family homestead that was the centre of the world for him. His understanding and love of the natural world including all its wild critters, and his belief in and commitment to the strength of family will be an enduring legacy.
