Tutkaluk, William Paul (Bill). It is with great sadness that we announce Bill's peaceful departure from this earth on the 3rd of April, 2021, in the Guelph General Hospital, surrounded by those who loved him.

Bill was, first and foremost, the most beloved father to Sarah and an adored 'Gigi' to Makayla and Avaiah. He was also the much-loved partner of Avril Borthiry, an awesome step-dad to John (Nicole), and a wonderful step-grandfather to Amaia and Elise. He was, as well, the cherished brother of Peter (Judy) and a friend and colleague to many.

Born on the 11th February, 1953, to parents Julia and Theodore (Ted), Bill spent most of his youth in Toronto. After attending St. Michael's College School, he went on to study at the University of Toronto, where he graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in science (B.Sc.) His love of academia and his respect for the value of education remained with him throughout his life.
He chose, however, the career path that gave him the most pleasure, following in his esteemed father's footsteps as the business owner and operator of a successful appliance repair company.

Anyone who met Bill for any amount of time was guaranteed to remember him. He had a natural way with people, taking a genuine interest in those he encountered, engaging in colourful conversations and sharing humorous tales of life's experiences.

He loved to watch hockey and was forever a supporter of the Leafs, (which says a lot about his ability to face a challenge). He loved to travel (often at speeds a little bit higher than the law allowed). And he also loved to play golf (and hardly ever cheated). Most of all, though, Bill loved spending time with his family. They gave him the most joy and made him proud every single day. He will be greatly missed.

A private mass will be held for Bill at the Holy Rosary Church, 175 Emma St, Guelph, on Friday, April 9th, 2021 at 10:30 a.m. Due to COVID restrictions, the service is by invitation only. A celebration of Bill's life, however, will be held at a future date. As expressions of sympathy and in lieu of flowers, donations to SkillsOntario would be very much appreciated.
