In addition to his loving wife of 63 years, he is survived by three children, Lynn and her husband Michael; Anne and her husband Richard; and Elizabeth. He also has two grandchildren, Gwen and her husband Michael; and Ross and his wife Margaret. Bill was predeceased by his siblings Annajane, Brooks, and Jane.
