1945 - 2021
Smith's Funeral Homes
1167 Guelph Line
Burlington, ON
On Saturday, November the 27, Bill was taken from us after battling Alzheimers for over 10 years. He went to join his family in Heaven and be with our Lord. Bill was the first born of 5 boys to Arnold and Mary Myles on May 15, 1945 in London, Ontario. The family moved to Scottville just outside of Lambeth when the boys were young. Bill went to grade school in Lambeth and was a 7 year man at G. A. Wheable High School. Bill was a great salesman and with his wonderful, positive attitude and encouraging smile he firstly sold clothes at Grafton Men's Clothing Store in London. Then cash registers for National Cash Register in Hamilton and finally found his joy in selling life insurance for 23 years. He established his own business but was forced to sell it after being diagnosed with Alzheimers in 2013. Bill was a good role model and a loving father to Nicky and Kristen and became a wonderful Grandpa to his four grandkids Finley, Nathan, Tea and Declan. He was also happy to have Sean and Shaun as his son-in-laws, getting moral support from his family of girls. Bill loved the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Blue Jay's. He enjoyed his seasons tickets taking his girls or friends with him to many games. Tennis and golf were his sports of choice which he enjoyed with many friends. Bill and Jo shared over 60 years together, from high school sweethearts in the sixties until his death. They travelled the world with insurance friends, shared wonderful memories at their family cottage with family and friends. He was so proud to own a cottage on Myles Bay. He became a strong Christian after joining Paul Henderson's Men's early morning bible study groups and eventually leading a group himself. As a couple they found and made great friendships upon joining Park Avenue Bible Church. Bill was a man of strong faith, he was compassionate, dedicated, kind and gentle. He enjoyed his early morning breakfasts with the members of the Rotary Club of Burlington He loved life and his family and treasured his many friends along his life's journey. He will be forever missed by the Myles and Johnson families and his lifelong friends from the Old Gang. Many thanks to everyone at Cama Woodlands where Bill spent his last 4 years. To the staff on Evergreen and especially Brenda and Madeline a big thank you. He was blessed to have been loved and cared for in this Christian home. Alzheimer's is indeed a cruel and heartless disease. If you are reading this obituary, stop right now and give your loved ones a hug. Tell them you love them. Life is too short. It always seems too short. In lieu of flowers, at Bill's request, please make a donation to the Alzheimer's Society of Halton.

To all the Myles family, I am so sorry for your loss. Bill was a kind, joyful and compassionate person. Always had a big smile and was never too busy to help others. He was my advisor for over 20 years and was always so helpful. He often expressed the love he had for his family - you were his world! My prayers are with you all.

I have such wonderful memories of cousin Bill. He was a special individual - thoughtful, kind, and always a gentlemen. His pleasing smile and happy nature made him fun to be around. He was someone we should all strive to emulate. My condolences to his family.

Saddened to hear this news. When we lived in Burlington (on Monmouth just around the corner from Bill) we were part of a tennis group and enjoyed the game as well as the annual get-a-way to Bob Simpson´s cottage on Lake-of-Bays. He was a great competitor on the court, the links and at the cribbage tABLE. Our thoughts go out to Bill´s family. Doug and Carol.

My deepest sympathy´s to Jo, Nicky and Kristen. Memories of Bills service and attendance to our past financial services will never be forgotten or the friendship of past years. The trials and tribulations we face in our daily lives are so hard to face at times. I am deeply sorry my health keeps me from attending Bills services and extending my condolences further. May the blessings be with you all and your family at this time and may the prayers of Jesus be with you all

Bill exuded warmth and love. I was privileged to be in his Bible study group and appreciate his deep faith and sincere nature. Alzheimers is a cruel thief indeed, but in the end, the victory belongs to Jesus. May the memories of his full life bring warmth to all who loved him. Peace, John.

Our deepest sympathy to Jo, Nicky and Kristen. We have very fond memories of a positive, happy spirit called Bill - who sang with his whole heart in the choir and gave "sage advice" to engaged couples. He touched many lives. Sincerely, Sandra and Michael
