William "Bill" Edwards

February 1, 1924 — August 7, 2021


William “Bill” Roy Edwards

Feb.1, 1924 – Aug. 7, 2021

Bill was a Toronto boy through and through. However, his heart was always at Kahshe Lake and he resided for many years in the Town of Gravenhurst, Muskoka.

Bill was Marion's beloved husband for 47 years. He will be missed by his children, David (Margaret) Edwards, Jill (William) Brown, Ross (Jane) Edwards and Carol (Lee) Lane. He will also be fondly remembered by nephew, Peter and nieces Lynda and Diane and their partners.

Bill was so proud of his children and their partners, but was thankful that his long life allowed him to enjoy his grandchildren and watch them grow into adulthood and see them prosper. They are Diana (Mark), Christopher (Colleen), Blake (Jodi), Erin (Adam), Gregory (Catherine), Lauren, and Jasmine (Jaxson).

His greatest joy was found in his great grandchildren, Clayton, Claire, Callie, Connor, Eleanor, Maya, Reed and Rory.

Bill was predeceased by parents George and Minnie Edwards, his sisters Ruth and Phyllis.

Bill was a man of strong opinion and great strength of character. He was a great and loyal friend and a loving man. Like many of his generation, he was hard working, well respected and honest to a fault. He was especially proud of the fact that he was never out of work a day in his life. He ended his long career as Executive Vice President of Advertising Agency R.T. Kelley in Hamilton, Ontario.

He takes a piece of our hearts with him but we were all so fortunate to have him in our lives for so long. He did it “His Way”.

If desired, donations in Bill's memory to South Muskoka Memorial Hospital would be appreciated. Personal condolences and memories may be shared at
