Bill passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 29, 2012 at the age of 82. Loving husband and partner of 50 years to Ann. Proud dad to Peter (Carey), Rob (Rick) and Richard (Charlotte), and beloved grandpa of Rowan, Derek, Emmett, Reed, and Seth. He will be deeply missed by his family and many friends. A pioneering computer scientist in the 1960s, Bill came to Ottawa from the UK in 1974 with his family to pursue a long career with BNR and then Nortel until his retirement in 1995. Bill became a volunteer at Kanata Theatre shortly after arriving in Canada, being involved in the construction of countless sets, lighting design, and the occasional stage role. There will be a Celebration of Life at the Ron Maslin Playhouse (1 Ron Maslin Way, Kanata) on Saturday, October 6 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Donations may be made in memory of Bill to the Ottawa Heart Institute or Kanata Theatre.
