LEE, William (Bill) CKOY/CKBY- CFMO retired A golden voice from a golden era of Ottawa radio has signed off for the last time. Surr-ounded by his devoted family, Bill Lee passed away peacefully on Sunday July 18, 2010 after a stubborn battle with cancer. He was 79. Over four decades, generations grew up listening to The Bill Lee Show on CKOY/CKBY-FM and CFMO-FM. His beautiful voice was a comforting part of the Ottawa landscape. But his best work was done at home, raising six children (and spoiling sixteen grandchildren). A very public person on the air but a very private man at home, his greatest joy was the simple pleasure of being with family. Bill - husband of Doreen (Croswell); father of Mark (Carol), Roger (Kathy), Dean (Kellie), Janine (Bill), Nancy (Ken), Tara (Mark); Cherished Grandfather of Dane, Blair and Jasmine; Michael, Joey and Susy; Connor and Spencer; Billy and Julia; Amy Allison and Amanda; Jordan, Emilee and Tyler. Predeceased by his mother, Eliza Jane Plecan. Survived by his two sisters, Mary White and Grace Jones and his stepsister Donna Schofield (Mal). The family would like to thank Dr. Bencze, Dr. Laurie, Dr. Agboola, Dr. Hurdon and the wonderful nurses at the Ottawa General Hospital and Bayshore Home Care. Friends are invited to visit at the West Chapel of Hulse, Playfair & McGarry, 150 Woodroffe Ave., at Richmond Rd. Friday 2-4pm and 7-9pm. A Funeral Service to celebrate Bill's life will be held at the Glen Cairn United Church, 140 Abbeyhill Dr., Kanata on Saturday, July 24, 2010 at 2 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations would be gratefully accepted by the Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre. "Come on Sam we're going home."
