London, Ont.; University of Western Ontario, 1975; family medicine. Died Nov. 23, 2020, aged 73. Survived by his wife Sharon, 3 children and 3 grandchildren. “In 1976 they moved to Exeter, Ont., where Dr. Bill served as a family doctor to the community and surrounding area until his final months. Bill had great respect for his patients, and his warmth, empathy and caring nature were certainly on display throughout his career. Bill made regular house calls in the community, delivered hundreds of babies in the Exeter Hospital and, after retiring from his large practice in 2004, he continued serving his patients in the local nursing home until very recently. Early on, he would bring his favorite yellow Labrador, Sam, to do nursing home rounds with him. Bill would smile and say, ‘They seem to enjoy the dog more than me!’ ”
