Willie was an exceptional sportsman, including baseball, hockey and boxing, as well as an avid dart, pool, washer toss player and bowler. A retiree from the Dalhousie Paper Mill, he also enjoyed hunting, fishing and fly tying. He enjoyed spending his summers at Sandy Beach with the love of his life Jeannine, family and many friends.
We are following Willie’s wishes, nothing more than having his ashes placed with Richard and Monique, in Dalhousie at a later date.
