SOROKOLIT, William - May 1931 - October 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Bill Sorokolit Sr. in his home surrounded by his loving family.
Bill was a beloved and devoted husband to Bonnie (Czajka) for 62 years.
He was the proud father of Susan (Kevin O'Brien), John (Dana), Bill (Heather) and loving grandfather to Brooke (Kyle), Jordan (Caroline), Max, Amanda, Melissa, Laurelle and Cassandra.
Bill was predeceased by his father Andrew, his mother Anna and his brother Peter Sorokolit (Shirley).
Bill showed ambition from an early age.
As a young boy he organized his friends to sell the updated hockey line up outside Maple Leaf Gardens. At the age of 16, while still in high school Bill worked part time at Rumble Motors selling cars and it wasn't long before he was awarded top salesman.
Bill was a family man and made sure all special occasions were well celebrated. He took joy in the antics of many close friends and enjoyed wintering in Florida with his sweetheart Bonnie especially when his children and grandchildren came south to visit.
Bill lived a full life by anyone's standards, never complaining when his illness made life a little tougher. It is with heavy hearts and tears that we say goodbye to our wonderful, kind and loving husband and father and grandfather.
A private family funeral has taken place and will be followed by a celebration of Bill's life at a future date when restrictions are lifted.
Donations in memory of Bill can be made to Parkinson Canada.
