Bill was born in Renfrew Ontario to Evelyn and Gordon Larone. He was predeceased by his brothers James, Jack, Donald and his twin brother Bob. He leaves behind brothers George, Gerald and David Larone.
Bill met his beloved wife Shirley O’Connor at Renfrew Collegiate and they enjoyed a happy sixty seven year marriage.
They went on to have three daughters, Deena Fredenburg (Thomas), Jill Larone, and Wendy Doherty. Bill was predeceased by his loving son-in-law Martin Doherty in 2021.
Upon retirement from a forty-year career with Ontario Hydro Bill enjoyed training and participating in Obedience trials and Confirmation Dog Shows as well as travelling with Shirley.
The family would like to thank Dr Hamid Mithoowani of the Grand River Cancer Centre and Oncology Nurse Jennifer for their years of dedication to the care of Bill as well as all the wonderful staff and residents of Chartwell Westmount Retirement Facility for the loving care and friendship to Bill over these past two years.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that you make a donation to Hospice Waterloo.
There will be a private family interment at a later date.
