Obituary

It is with deep sadness we announce the peaceful passing of William Bishop in the arms of his loving daughter Debbie at the Palliative Care Unit of the L.A. Miller Centre on May 24, 2020 at the age of 94.  Bill was formerly of Red Harbour, Placentia Bay and lived in Paradise for the past 21 years.  He lived a wonderful fulfilled life and enjoyed every minute.  Predeceased by his wife Mabel (1999), parents Charles and Irene Bishop, stepbrother Reg Bishop and stepsister Violet Jarvis.  Survived by daughter Debbie Lynch (Terry), special friend Nina March and her family, sister Ethel Carmanville, niece Jean Bartlett (Howard), nephew Albert Senior (Hilda), nephews Bill Jarvis (Norma) and James Bishop (Doreen), 50 Plus Club friends in Paradise, which was a big part of Bill’s life.  Special thanks to his family physician, Dr. Matthew Greening and Dr. Duffy and the Palliative Care Team at the PCU.   Due to the current public health concerns of Covid-19, a private family service will take place in St. John’s, and interment will take place in Winterland.  No flowers by request, donations may be made to the Winterland Cemetery Fund.

So sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of following him around on visits to Red Harbour. No matter how many times I would ask Uncle Billy to make a muscle he would always flex and have a laugh as I would vainly try to sink my fingers into his bicep. As I grew older I came to appreciate that his strength of character was equally impressive. I know that I and many others will remember him fondly for the rest of our lives.

Take care…

There are no words, thinking of you, will miss his visits so much, the chats and giggles..Howard sends love.. Glennys, Conroy

To the Bishop family… we are so saddened to hear of your loss. I remember “Uncle Billy” as we would all call him. He was always such a gentle soul eager to lend a hand and tell stories of days gone by. I remember as a child going with my Dad to his house, he was building a boat in the shed and my Dad was helping him with it. My Dad often spoke of “Uncle Billy” when he was whittling away in his own shed, of how he showed him this or that. He will always be remembered by our family and hold a special place in our hearts. Sending love and prayers to you all.
RIP “Uncle Billy”
