It is with heavy hearts that the family of William James Evans (Uncle Bill) 1932-2022 announce his passing on Monday 7 March 2022 after a brief illness
Bill was the son of the late Erskine & Elsie Evans. He is survived by his sister Marjorie Habermehl and her children Stephen (Nancy), Dawn Rumble (Jim), Lee Pickel (Bill), Peter, and Susan Habermehl-Chin (Anis). He was a beloved great uncle to 13 nieces and nephews and many great greats. He was predeceased by his older brother Robert (2010), sister-in-law Wilma (2015) and nephew-in-law Howard (2012).
Bill graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1954 and continued his studies as a Rotary Fellow at the University of Cambridge in England. He was an accountant (CPA CA) working for Ontario Hydro in Toronto and he spent many hours travelling by train between Toronto and St Marys.
Bill was a very quiet, private man with a core of steel. He enjoyed the opera, symphony and ballet and was very generous to many charities. His greatest generosity was directed towards his family. Every Sunday he would prepare and host a family dinner for as many as could attend. His quiet intelligent spirit will be missed by all who knew him.
There will be a Memorial Service at the ST. MARYS UNITED CHURCH on April 18th at 11 am. Masks are to be worn by everyone in attendance. Light lunch will follow in the hall.
