“Memories are something no-one can steal.”
Bill sadly passed away on 5th July in the care of Leighton Hospital, aged 78 years, knowing he was loved and cared for.
Bill was born in Crewe on Friday 6th December 1940 to proud parents Harriet and Bill. One of four siblings, he is survived by Marjorie, Irene and Elaine. His early years were spent enjoying the open fields that surrounded Crewe and it was probably his love for the outdoors that made him take up fishing.
After he left Ludford Street school he did his apprenticeship at Crewe Works and finished his time as a skilled joiner. He worked at Crewe works all his life retiring at about 60. Now he could really pursue what he loved, Crown Green Bowling at Queen’s Park club, where he made friends for a lifetime. Beside fishing this was something that helped him relax and socialise.
His family ment everything to him and along with his wife Anita, Bill liked nothing more than holidaying to Weymouth and Tenby.
After teaching his grandson Brandon to play bowls, Bill’s proudest moment was knowing that Brandon went on to play for Cheshire.
He loved his home life with his beloved wife Anita, his daughters Karen, Gillian and Susan, his grandchildren Dean, Daniel, Brandon, Jordan, Benjamin, Katie, Tom, Jamie and Matthew and his great grandchildren Harley, Emilie, Leo, Olivia, Zak and the late Bentley.
Bill was described by his family as a no fuss kind of person who loved company and would do anything for his beloved family. He has left a lifetime of precious memories for his family and friends.
Bill’s funeral will take place on Monday 15th July at the Crematorium Chapel, Crewe at 1.20pm, followed by cremation.
Donations in memory of Bill will be gratefully received on behalf of Ward 7, Leighton Hospital.
