Bill passed away peacefully at the Village of Winston Park on Friday evening May 27, 2022 at the age of 102. Bill was preceded by his wife Joyce Adams (2017).
Loved by his children Sharon Adams of Waterloo and David (Margaret) of Sherwood Park, Alberta. Fondly remembered by his grandchildren, Scott Ruppenthal (Renee), Amy Weltz (Kyle), Jonathan Adams (Sara) and his great-granddaughters, Ella Ruppenthal, Winnie Weltz and Hazel Adams.
Bill was actively involved in the KW community for many years, including Trinity United Church, Scouts Canada, Member and Past President of Kiwanis Club of Cameron Heights and various charitable events. His love of golf kept him actively involved locally and in Florida until his early nineties and the associated friendships throughout the decades provided him a joyful and vibrant life.
As a proud member of the Highland Light Infantry (HLI). Bill landed on Juno Beach in 1944 and was the last Canadian surviving member of this regiment.
Our family wishes to thank the staff of Winston Park for their compassion and care of our Father; of particular note we are grateful for the past nine years of friendships and kindness shown to Bill and family by staff in the Williamsburg and Egerton neighbourhoods.
A committal service for family has taken place.
