It is with profound heartache that we announce the unexpected passing of our fun-loving Bill on Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at the age of 55.

Best friend and soul mate of Sherry.

Wonderful father of Brandon (Mary), Nathan (Amanda), Naomi (Lyndsey), Abigail and Hailee. Much loved Grandpa of Braydon, Aubree and Ashton. Devoted son of Murdena “Deanie” and the late Joseph Taylor. Fun loving brother of Bryan (Christine), Brenda Mantello (Arthur Christiansen), Bernice Seabrook (Ken).

Bill will be greatly missed by many nieces, nephews and his furry friend Archie. Bill will be remembered by his colleagues in Corrections and Police Services for his dedication and his professionalism. He enjoyed passing the time with his hobby of woodworking and spending time with his family. Bill will always be remembered for his enthusiasm, his love for making others laugh, and always making sure we said, “I Love You”.

Friends and family are invited to visit at Northwood Funeral Home Cremation and Reception Centre (942 Great Northern Rd, 705-945-7758) on Tuesday, January 16, 2018 from 11:00 am until time of service in the chapel at 1:00 pm with Mrs. Helen Smith officiating.

Memorial donations to the Sault Ste. Marie Humane Society, Kidney Foundation or the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
