William "Bill" Bryson passed away November 16 at Forest Heights LTC at the amazing age of 86, or, as he would say, "I am old." Bill is predeceased by Myra Cracknell (2007) his loving wife of 49 years. Bill and his sense of humour will be missed by his son Sean (Jenny), daughter Denise Schaefer (Jim Roberts), and beautiful granddaughter Maggie Schaefer (Dan LeBaron), sister-in-law Lynn Titcombe (Al) and their children. Bill's passion was golf. Playing, watching, analyzing and, for those who would listen, providing "free advice". He enjoyed playing the Doon Valley Classic course 3-5 times a week and played to a high level while he was still physically able. He was constantly tweaking his game and experimenting with clubs and putters. Thank you to the Forest Heights LTC staff who tried their best to keep Bill's spirits up during this difficult Covid time. The family will honour Bill's wishes to have no memorial service. In the spring, we will host a tree planting memorial at Doon Valley Golf Course. In lieu of flowers, donations are gratefully accepted towards the Tree Planting at Doon Valley Golf Course. Call 519-741-2200 ext. 5182 to leave your donation in Bill's name. Hope you are enjoying heavenly rounds with your favourite foursomes and sharing your earthly "situations". You will be missed.

Uncle Bill's infectious laugh will be missed. I am so thankful for all the holidays I got to spend with him, my Aunt Myra, Sean and Denise in their home in Kitchener. They are memories I will always cherish of our families. Prayers for peace and comfort to the family.

Bill lived life to the fullest. We have so many memories, Bill our bother-in-law and Myra (2007) our sister. Knowing Bill since his marriage to Myra, we have shared so many laughs and some sad moments. Our love to all his family, especially Denise, Sean and Maggie, your Dad and Grandfather, he was a special man.
