William (Bill) MacDonald

Bill passed away peacefully at his retirement residence, Abbeylawn Manor in Pickering, on Sunday, April 26th. He recently celebrated his 84th birthday. Bill is predeceased by his beloved wife Catherine (2004). He was called “Dad” by his three children: daughter Sandra (spouse Bob Alexander); son John (spouse Sandra Zidaric); daughter Jennifer (spouse Bob Mills). Bill was also known as “Pa” to grandchildren: Jason & Jenn, Melissa, Michelle, Adam, Stephanie, Megan, David, Evan, Brandon & Kenny. He was known as “Great Pa” to great-grandchildren: Hayden, Kyla, Mya, Abigail, Chase & Victoria.

Bill lived and worked all his years in the Coldwater / Orillia area. He loved to play or watch the game of baseball.

Bill was a very private man who requested no funeral service. His ashes will be interred with Catherine at the St. James Cemetery in Orillia. A private celebration of his life will take place, when pandemic restrictions are lifted. Donations can be made in his memory to the ALS Society of Ontario.

Bill will be forever missed by the family he loved...may he rest in eternal peace ❤️
