It is with profound sadness that, at the request of S/M Rob Akin, Toronto Division RCMPVA announces the passing of Bill Jeffery as the result of a motor vehicle accident.
The Division’s condolences go out to Bill’s family in this tragic event.
We are heartbroken to announce the tragic death of Bill on Monday, July 17, 2017 at St. Michael’s Hospital at the young age of 64 due to a motor vehicle accident. Loving husband and best friend for 44 years to Carmel (nee Dooley), wonderful father to Nancy (Kylie), Laura (Juan), Michael (Caitlin), best Papa to Jack, Ava Samantha and soon to be new grandchild. Cherished brother to Bob (Fran), Patricia (John), Betty-ann (Ted), John (Vicky). Wonderful brother-in-law to Nora (Syl), Patrick (Catharine), Pauline, Valerie (Max). Most loved uncle to 8 nieces and 9 nephews. Bill will be missed by extended family and friends. He was a dear friend to all.
Bill was born in St. Michael’s hospital and raised in the east end of Toronto. Bill and Carmel met in high school and began a lifelong love that never ended, only grew. Bill was a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) where he had a very successful career. He was an avid golfer and it became more of a passion in his retirement years. Bill’s favourite pastime was spending time with his friends at the Irish Club of Mississauga where hours could be spent discussing golf.
Visitation to be held at the Glen Oaks Funeral Home, 3164 Ninth Line, Oakville, 905 257 8822, on Thursday July 20th from 2-4 and 7-9 pm. The funeral mass will be held at St. Ignatius Loyola Roman Catholic Church, 2300 Burnhamthorpe Rd. W., Mississauga on Friday July 21, 2017 at 11 am. A private cremation at a later date.
The family would like to thank the dedicated staff at St. Michael’s Hospital for the care they gave to Bill and his family. To anyone who assisted in any way through this awful incident, the family would like to thank you.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada or to St. Michael’s Hospital Foundation. Online condolences may be made at www.glenoaks.ca
