William Anthony death – obituary, cause of death :  William Anthony 67, has died. He passed away on October 16, 2019.

William was a dedicated and loving husband, a father that demonstrated that greatness could be achieved through hard work and passion and a man that exemplified that a humble spirit and joyous heart could improve the lives of all around him.

He attended and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Commerce from Ferris State College, Big Rapids, Michigan and a Bachelor of Education from the University of Western Ontario but mainly worked in maintenance.

Anthony was a perfect example of what it means to be a wonderful person. He had a calming presence and was extremely kind, he touched the hearts of so many, and was an inspiration to everyone who knew him.

The little reminders that cause tears today will turn into little reminders that make us sad and then those little reminders will eventually make us smile and remember William just as he would have wanted us to-with love, a grin and maybe a cold one.

He is preceded in death by his wife the late Reverend Grace Coleman Anthony and survived by his sons Ian and Marge, Alan and Karma, and Owen and Jennifer. Loving grandfather to Jessica, Matthew, David, Caraline, Emily, Laura, Amy, Eliza and Charlotte.

He owned T&B Dock and Marine and its affiliate Anthony Contracting; an excavating business and he had a love of history and was a collector of WW II vehicles, as well as cars, trucks, tractors and boats.
