William Newton (Bill) Bone
BONE, William Newton (Bill) Born, on April 29, 1943, passed away on Feb. 16, 2021, in the Palliative Suite at St. Joseph's Hospital in Hamilton. He leaves his two daughters behind Shannon and her husband Guy - Raegan and her husband David. Also, mourning this loss are his beloved grandchildrenSamuel, Broderick, Nicole, and his partner in parenting, Sylvia. He is predeceased by his sister, Elizabeth Wallace, and parents Mae and Newton Bone. Bill enjoyed a long career as an educator and retired as a Principal with the Peel Board of Education in 1994. It was there, he met his lifelong friends, Jan and Dave Richardson. Our lives are forever entwined and we are so thankful for your generous spirit and unwavering friendship with Bill. Upon his retirement, he moved north to his beloved Menominee Lake where he made more connections with the community through his involvement with the Heritage Train and his faithful patronage at The Baysville Pavilion. When his health became too much for him to manage, he lived with Raegan and Dave outside of Hamilton. We are so thankful for his Nurse Mui and devoted PSW Deb who tolerated his questionable sense of humour, daily frustrations and was a great source of information and support to our family. A dedicated volunteer for The Huntsville and Lake of Bays Railway Society for as long as he was able, donations to the Muskoka Heritage Place in his honour would be so meaningful to the family.
