Spending time with his family and friends was what Bill enjoyed most. He will also be forever remembered for his passion of cars, his favourite team the Toronto Maple Leafs and he loved to dance. Bill started his career in construction and also began at the Ford Motor Plant in Talbotville when it opened, in 1967 where he worked throughout until retirement in 1994. Bill always loved a good game of Euchre which often times would lead into the wee hours of the morning.
