Suddenly passed away at his residence on March 10, 2018 in his 82nd year. Loving husband of Cynthia (nee Fox). Dear father of Donna Gill (Troy), Richard Ross, John Ross, Kathryn Motley, Jennifer Ross and step father of Glenn Malloy (Doreen). Bill will be missed by his grandchildren, great grandchildren and by his close friends in the Coast Guard and Dart Leagues. Bill was a great friend to all who knew him, a veteran (12 years U.S. Navy and 12 years U.S. Coast Guard), drinking buddy and story teller. A man who visited Antarctica twice, the North Pole, passed through the Northwest Passage several times and even the Panama Canal, all since the age of 50. Hats off to Bill, we will all miss his humor and endless stories.
Arrangements entrusted to the ARMSTRONG FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 179 Clarence Street, Port Colborne. A gathering to celebrate Bill’s life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 56, Port Colborne on Thursday from 1 – 4 p.m. If so desired, memorial donations may be made to the Legion Branch 56.
