BURGESS, William George 'Bill' - On September 8, 2021.

Predeceased by his wife, Marion Burgess, and his daughter, Kathy Read, Bill is survived by his daughters Lynda (Paul) Crago, Debbie (John) Snowden and Janice Burgess, his son-in-law, Stan Read, his grandchildren, Meghan, Mackenzie, Jennifer, Jessica, Michelle and Trevor and his great-grandchildren, Addison, Emma, Olivia, Eleanor, Emerson, Veronique, Klara, Lauren and Charlotte. 

Bill is also survived by his brother Wayne Burgess.

He was predeceased by his parents, Arthur and Vera Burgess, his sister, Gwen Baird, and his brother, Melville Burgess. 

Bill played sports his entire life. He was a competitive badminton player and longtime member and supporter of the old Bowmanville Badminton Club, an active member of the Bowmanville Tennis Club for decades, an avid squash player and life-long golfer.  He reluctantly retired from tennis and golf only a few short years ago when he was in his late 80s. 

Bill and Marion were passionate Bridge players. They both loved to travel the world and were lucky to have made many good friends along the way.

Bill was fun loving and truly lived life to the fullest every single day. He was a shining example of a life well lived.

We would like to say a special thanks to Dad’s nurses on the second floor at Bowmanville Hospital. You tucked Dad under your wings for his last few days and reminded us, yet again, what special people nurses are.

Arrangements are with Northcutt Elliott Funeral Home.
