William Edward “Bill” MacLeod
1941-2019
With great sadness we announce the death of William Edward
“Bill” MacLeod, husband of Susan (Jamieson) MacLeod and son
of the late Daniel and Emma (Trundle) MacLeod on August 21, 2019.
During his illness, he remained brave and thankful and set a great
example for family and friends.
Besides his wife of 51 years, Susan, he is survived by his
son Andrew (Alison Rideout) of Linwood, Ontario, his daughter Sarah
(Stephen Strickey) of Ottawa, and his beloved grandchildren Zachary
St-Amand, Emma, Sam and Adam MacLeod and William, Noah and Lucas
Strickey. He loved being their father and Papa, and they gave him
unconditional love and support. He is also survived by several loving
nieces, nephews and cousins.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his
granddaughter, Maggie MacLeod, brothers Carl (Eva), Arnold (Margaret)
and sister Danena Masters (Earl).
Born in St. Stephen, NB, Bill grew up in a strong farming
family. His sense of family, hard work and interest in agriculture
were fostered at an early age. He left the farm to study education at
the University of New Brunswick where he earned a Bachelor of
Education and later attended the University of Maine where he
graduated with a Masters in Educational Administration.
Bill enjoyed a long and distinguished career as a teacher and
principal. During his career he taught in New Brunswick in Millville,
St. Stephen, Oromocto and Fredericton as well as in Germany. The last
18 years were spent as Principal of Priestman Street School. He took
great pride in his career and enjoyed meeting former students and
colleague that he impacted throughout his decades in
education.
Bill was a man of great integrity and faith and had a wealth
of varied interests. He loved travelling, amassed an impressive art
collection and was an excellent chef. Bill enjoyed the company of
family, friends and neighbours. His intelligence, quick wit and caring
manner will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. His
heart never left the family farm as following his retirement Bill
developed a serious interest in breeding Simmental cattle. He was
associated for many years with the Canadian Simmental Association
(CSA) culminating in induction to the CSA Hall of Fame in
2012.
