Mr. William "Bill" Adrian Book
January 6, 1920 - April 27, 2019

With sad but peaceful hearts, we share the news of the passing of our beloved Bill.

He was predeceased by his loving wife, of 75 years, Lucy (February 2019). Treasured father of David Book and his wife Wendy, Margaret Clark and her husband Bruce and Kathy Magee and her husband Brian. Proud grandpa of Peter, Sarah (Owen), David (Betty), Zoe (Dave) and Beau, and great-grandfather of Isaac, Elliott, Jacob, Eva and Adrian. He will also be dearly missed by his sister-in-law Leone Reeder, good friend Helen-Marie Robins and many cherished nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents Grant and Aleathea Book, his siblings Jack Book and Margaret Church and their spouses, and his good friend and mentor Dr. Alex Frew.

Bill's family will receive friends at the Gilbert MacIntyre and Son Funeral Home, Hart Chapel, 1099 Gordon St., Guelph for a Memorial Service to commemorate his life on Thursday, May 9, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. with visitation 1 hour prior. If so desired, memorial donations made to Harcourt Memorial United Church, The Arthritis Society or The MS Society would be appreciated.

Our lives are enriched by his steadfast love and quiet strength.

Our sincere condolences to David, Margaret, Kathy and families for your loss. Your dad was such a kind, gentle man and was always smiling, whenever we saw him. He will be missed. Such a wonderful, long life he enjoyed with Aunt Lucy and may it bring you comfort knowing that they are together once again. Our prayers are with you at this difficult time. Love Colin, Nina, Emily & Sarah Cooper

Please accept my deepest sympathy in the loss of your Dad. I remember him and Lucy so well at Riverside Church here in London. They were both very special people. My caring thoughts are with you. Norma Clare London

Bill was the most wonderful neighbour to have had on Indian Rd. I have many wonderful memories of growing up with your parents living next door. I am very sorry for your loss.
