Bill peacefully passed away at Northumberland Hills Hospital on November 2nd, 2021 with his wife of 65 years, Yvonne Shannon at his side. A wonderful father to Bradley Shannon (Carrie), Christine Long (Garry), and Matthew Shannon (Tracey Kelly). A loving Grampa to Christopher Long, Jennifer Lawrie, Hollie McNulty, Lucas Shannon, and Emily Shannon. A proud Great Grampa to Shaylynn and Adaira.
Bill was a proud member of the Toronto Fire Department, retiring in 1997 as a District Chief after 35 years of service. He was an avid golfer and a long-time member of Dalewood Golf Club. We can take pleasure in knowing that Bill has joined his many friends on the permanent 19th hole!
