Synnott, William "Bill" Joseph -
Mr. Bill Synnott passed away peacefully at the Village of Riverside Glen on Sunday, February 21, 2021 at the age of 93 years. Beloved husband of Margaret (Valiquette) Synnott for 67 years. Loving father of Gail (Claudio), Wendy, Karen (Fred), Lynn (Ron), Paul and Derek (Leanne). Cherished grandfather of Danielle (Jack), Andrea (Mike), Bryan (Melody), Brieann, Blake, Brock, Brooklyn, Breanna. Cherished great-grandfather of Mia, Lily, Jake, Joelle, Kaiden, Max and Emily. Survived by brothers, Tom, Fred (Helen) and by sisters, Denise (late Henry), and Sheila (Charlie) and by brother-in-law Bob Mandzen. Predeceased by brothers Barry, Leo (Late Lucy), and sister Mary Mandzen.

Bill was an avid tinker. Anything broken he would fix. He always said, “I can fix that. Old’s better than new.” Marg and Bill were avid travelers, starting with their tent trailer to their 18 foot Rambler. They camped across Canada and the U.S. with family in tow for 14 years. They settled in a 39 foot trailer and parked at Sauble Beach Resort Camp for 35 years. What memories this place holds for the whole family. Bill also spent winter months for 27 years in sunny Barbados, his home away from home. They then transferred for 4 years to North Fort Meyers, Florida. Bill was the official greeter at all places and was always bringing new guests back for drinks and campfires. Bill was an avid card player, euchre, cribbage, chase the ace were some of his favourites. As soon as he arrived at his destination, a card game was in play. Bill taught his children and grandchildren many games and loved including them.

Many thanks to the staff at Riverside Glen – Arthur Neighbourhood for the excellent care they gave Bill during his time there, especially during his palliative care.

We’re sure a card game is in play right now. Sending our love your way.
