Bill was a longtime educator in the Keswick/Sutton area and guided schools such as St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Bernadette as their Principal. He moved to Senator O’Connor College School teaching computer sciences before retiring in Fort Erie. His desire to keep active meant re-entry into the workforce at Walmart where he enjoyed both the patrons and staff. He loved travel and downtime at his getaway at Sherkston Shores where Diane and he would enjoy family and fun.
Bill’s diagnosis and decline while sudden was made somewhat easier by the compassionate health professionals around him. Dr. Scher, with the support of Para Med, St. Elizabeth Health, and the Douglas Memorial Palliative Care Unit ensured dignity and comfort were always at the forefront of Bill’s care.
