Stirling WilliamSTIRLING, William (Bill)

August 20, 1928 -  September 17, 2023


Bill passed away peacefully at Amica Whitby on Sunday September 17, 2023, 3 weeks into his 96th year. 


Bill was the beloved husband of the late Dorothy for 57 years, and much-loved father of the late Bill (Dawne) of Calgary, Bob (Karen) of Whitby, and Margaret Bennett (Stephen) of Georgetown.


He was the cherished Grandad of Jessica, Danny, Tori, Lauren, Madie and Ally, and Great Grandad of Kaylee and Brooklyn.


Bill graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, and went on to enjoy a distinguished 40-year career with General Motors of Canada, culminating in his role as the Director of GM of Canada Plant Engineering.


His proudest accomplishment was achieved in 1988 as one of the team leaders that oversaw the planning and construction of the GM of Canada Headquarters building on Colonel Sam Drive.


Bill was actively involved in the community, most notably as a proud and longstanding member of the Rotary Club of Oshawa. He was an avid golfer and curler at the Oshawa Golf and Curling Club. But by far, his most cherished social activities revolved around following his beloved Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Blue Jays, and Toronto Argonauts. Those of us left behind are hoping that he can now provide some divine intervention to help the success of his teams.


Resting at the  ARMSTRONG FUNERAL HOME , 124 King Street East, Oshawa. Memorial Visitation Wednesday October 5th, 5 – 8 pm.  Private family graveside ceremony to take place at a later date.


Memorial donations to the Rotary Club of Oshawa are gratefully requested or the charity of your choice.
