Bill Humphries of Walton passed away suddenly at home on Friday, November 29, 2013 in his 83rd year.
Bill was the beloved husband of Marjory (nee McDonald) of 58 years and the devoted father of Roger, Susan and Hugh, Paul, Peggy and Greg and Andrea. Loving and proud grandfather of Stefan, Terry, Cody, Joshua, Alexandra and Colin. Brother in law to Mary Humphries, John and Joyce MacDonald, Donna and Maurice Hetherington and Hugh and Bev MacDonald. Sadly missed by many nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by his parents William and Margaret (Bolton), brother Stewart and sisters Mary(Rutledge) and baby Jean.
Bill spent his life in Walton serving many years in the family business and later worked 20 years as a salesman for Knechtel Wholesale Grocery in Kitchener, On. His favorite pastimes included scouting and the numerous fastball teams he was involved with. A lot of laughs and precious memories came on and off the ball field. He never tired of reliving some of the games and antics with past players and competitors. Woodworking was also one of Bill's passions. The family are all lucky to have many of his projects in their homes. He was always ready for the next family project, a trait he has passed on to the rest of his family.
Cremation and private family service has taken place according to his wishes.
The family would like to thank the following: Huron Paramedic Services for their prompt and professional service, the OPP Wingham Detachment for their professional and kind support, Schimanski Family Funeral Home for their comforting words and professionalism and for the many comforting words from family, friends and neighbours.
As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to Clinton Public Hospital or the charity of your choice.
