In his 74th year, Peacefully at Lakeridge Health Oshawa.

Predeceased by his wife Nancy, parents Mona and Lawrence Wilkie of Cobourg, mother in law Viola Adair of Newcastle, and siblings Lynn, Donna, Al and John.

Loving father to Donna Bayat (Askar) and Buffy Rodgers (Doug Notton) both of Bowmanville.

Loving Gramps to Abigail Bayat (Kevin Till), Grandpa to Ali and Laila Bayat, doting Poppa to his fur granddaughter Annie, surrogate dad to Virginia Sopher and Natalie (Zeke) Price, And special Friend to Angela King.

Bill's parents were told he wouldn't live past the age of 14 and he beat those Doctors estimate by 60 years.

He was always a fighter. Special thanks to the Code team at Bowmanville Hospital for giving the girls extra time with their daddy, and the amazing Nurses in the Oshawa Critical Care Ward for their dedication and care in Bill's last days.

Thanks to Nancy's family for their love and support, nephew Jay Rodgers (Terri) for his daily check in and to Kayla Summers who nursed Bill's toe lovingly for a year.

Bill wished to have no funeral or celebration of life.
