SELFE: William Baird “Bill” – passed away suddenly, two days shy of his 87th birthday. Bill enjoyed the city and small town life growing up in Toronto and Wasaga Beach. Bills’ passion was drumming and he was happiest performing with The Toronto Signal Drum Core and instructing drum lines with The Teen Tour Band in Burlington. During his 29-year retirement from Ford Canada, he could be found on golf courses in Florida, Wasaga, and the Port Rowan area. Many friendships were made during time spent at work, golf, fishing, drum core, and life in the Villages of Long Point Bay. Bill was the kindest of men, who cherished his family. Honesty and hard work were morals he stood by.
He will be forever missed by his wife Rosemary, his children Pat (Norm), Vince (Kim), and Cameron (Amanda). He was predeceased by daughter Beverly (2014). Fondly treasured by grandchildren Bryce, Molly, Cassie, Tyler, and Nina, along with great grandchildren Cami, Gabi, and Wyatt.
He will march on forever in our hearts.
Relatives and friends may call at the Jeffrey W. Glendinning Funeral Home 36 Front St., Port Rowan on Sunday from 2-4pm. A service to celebrate Bills’ life will be conducted in the Clubhouse of the Villages of Long Point Bay, Port Rowan on Monday March 12, 2018 at 1:00 pm. Reception will follow.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart & Stroke Foundation (cheques accepted) would be appreciated by the family.
