Obituary for William James Paisley
PAISLEY, William “Bill”, Passed away at Extendicare Guildwood in Scarborough on May 21st, 2020 at the the age of 79. Predeceased by his loving wife of 53 years, Christina (2017). Bill will be sadly missed by his children Ronald (Leanne), Steven and Kenneth (Tania). Proud Grandfather of Eric, Dana, Madison and Logan. Survived by his sister Jessie Skidmore. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to Heart & Stroke Foundation.
Dad was a proud home owner on Blantyre in the Beach from the late 60’s. He could be found on the porch most days from May to September (even later depending on the temperatures). He was very handy, building a second floor addition a kitchen extension and more than one back deck over the years.
Family was important to Dad. On top of the home renovations, he was a dedicated father, who helped coach some of his sons teams and drove the boys everywhere they needed to be. He even planted trees on the property for each newborn son. Ron’s Maple is still standing today.
He was a very loyal employee of Crang & Boake Architects for over 40 years. Creating lifelong friendships along the way.
Since Mom’s passing in 2017, Dad battled various health issues. Cancer forced the removal of his bladder prior to mom passing. As he fought with that, he suffered a stroke in June 2019. From that point he went from Michael Garron Hospital to Toronto Rehab, he was then moved to Midland Gardens Long Term Care and finally to Extendicare Guildwood. In late April he tested positive for Coronavirus. His symptoms remained a mild fever at first, but then increased to the point that he could no longer fight. The three of us managed to have one last window visit with him the evening prior to his passing.
We welcome you to leave any tributes of your own and thanks for visiting, Ron, Steve & Ken
