Obituary of William Barnett Waite

Waite, William Barnett


 July 16th, 1949 to November 19th, 2018 


Bill spent the majority of his life on Kawagama Lake near Dorset, and passed away in Minden, Ontario, to join his late parents, Barney and Millie.  Bill was an honour science graduate of the University of Toronto.  He was a voracious reader of world history and science fiction, spending a lot of his time at the local library, and was an avid movie buff.  He taught himself calligraphy, and even learned to write and read Chinese. Bill spent many years faithfully and lovingly looking after his mother.  He was a good friend of Jack Gourlie and Ann Crysdale of Orillia. A beautiful mind and a very kind, sensitive soul. We will miss him. A private service and interment will be held in the spring. As expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation through the Simcoe Funeral Home, 38 James St E. Orillia.
