PICKETT, William Leslie Pickett, Obituary | Print |

PICKETT, William Leslie -

74, of North Bay (formerly Trout Creek and Hamilton), passed away peacefully July 13, 2014 after a long battle with Cancer and Heart Disease.

He was born, raised, worked and played in Hamilton, Ontario; William was a Stelco Employee for 32 years, retiring in 1989.

His love of nature and fishing brought him north the same year. You may have seen him around Remembrance Day handing out poppy quarters to hold at the eleventh hour so we could all be together and remember those who preceded us. Often rolls upon rolls to local churches. Possibly you saw him at the racetrack or the OTB, he loved the horses! Perhaps at the coffee shop (or in younger years the tavern) telling a slightly off coloured joke.

He deeply loved his family. He also loved his friends. He was loyal to all who returned the loyalty.

Numerous Doctors, Nurses, VON, and Red Cross deserve great thanks for their help over the past decade. A special thanks to Nurse Nelli, Nurse Carolyn and Dr. Mike Leckie, who were there for him on his final day.

Cremation will take place before burial in Hamilton. A celebration of life will take place at RHLI, 1353 Barton Street East, Hamilton, Ontario on Thursday, July 17, 2014 from 2-5 p.m.

He will be greatly missed, however, he asked that we rejoice in his life rather than mourn his passing.
