As I write this I can’t help but feel my heart breaking in a million tiny little fragments; and each of these fragments breaking again…
For over 30 years I have loved this man. He was more than my husband, he was my friend, my lover, my partner, my biggest challenge, my greatest accomplishment, my life, my world, my absolute everything! Even through our challenges, no matter how difficult things became he stayed the course, and focused on the most important thing in his life-his family. Making us work, being sure that our boys were happy, and that we were taken care of. He knew our life together was the best way to end his story and that the five of us worked best together. He made sacrifices, but he never saw the sacrifices – he saw his duty – we were his number one priority.
Anyone who knew Bill, knew him as a man of virtue, integrity, honour, respect, kindness, pride, and absolute goodness. Bill loved his job, his friends, his renovations, his Habs, his country music, Newfoundland, fishing and hunting. He was a simple and humble man. He was true to himself and he was happy.
Bill was, and always will be a man of character. If you worked with Bill you knew his word was golden and his handshake counted for something, for everything!
On June 1, Bill’s job on this earth was done. His final nail was driven, his final tire change completed, his final bead of caulking inserted, and his last ATV ride in the town he loved, with his fantastic friends, came to an end. Proudly, his final Gilliam’s project – Waypoint was delivered. He attended his last hockey, baseball, football, soccer, and whatever other activities the boys got themselves into. On June 1st Bill proudly laid his accordion to rest, and his music stopped, forever.
Bill’s love and legacy will continue with his family. On June 1st he left behind me, his partner in crime for 30 years – Malvina. His best buddies and his proudest accomplishments; his 3 sons, William Jr., James and Tyson.
Also broken hearted is his loving Mom, Brenda & Father, Gerald – he admired his parents beyond words. He leaves his beautiful sisters Stephanie (Jon and Olivia), Cathy and his Grandmother Margaret, his Mother in law Blanch(Kevin), his extended family Myrna, Corbin, Barry, Marilyn, and their families. He also has his lifelong friend Corey. And so many others.
