We are so sorry to hear about your loss. Our thoughts are with Elena and her family.

RIP Bill.

Bill and Phui are family friends of both my Mom and Aunt Darlene. I have many fond memories of Bill, but one that sticks out is from the time that Bill helped me build a fence in my mothers backyard, we had a great few days of construction and shared many laughs.

Phui, We are truly sorry for your loss. Bill was always kind to us & we will always remember his great sense of humour & his ability to make us laugh & smile with the greatest of ease. Please know you are in our thoughts & prayers during this difficult time. Sending our love,
Charlotte & Glen

Gone but never forgotten- My Uncle Bill.
May he rest easy with no pain.
The comic relief of my family, the Mr Fix it, the “Dev” ,so many memories, that I will cherish the rest of my life. I have been so blessed to have known him. They say to raise a child it takes a village and he has certainly played a major role in who I am today. A fighter until the bitter end, Bill has taught me more than he ever knew, Love you Always ❤️

In just the 3 short years I’ve known Bill, he treated me like his own. Always there to lend a helping hand however he could. We shared many laughs, good food and strong drinks. You will be missed dearly. I wish we had more time.

Phi and family

So long to our brother Bill until we meet again.

We are glad we got to spend that time together & we know you are reunited with our Dear Father & Mother in heaven where you will rest in Peace.

Dear Phui & family,

I am so sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. Please accept my deepest condolences.

Uncle Bill….the lover of coffee & goofy jokes that would make you both laugh & groan. I have many fond memories of this hard working family friend, who eventually stole Aunt Phui’s heart to become her soulmate & a special part of the family. He was quiet, humble, & always willing to lend a hand to anyone, whether they asked or not. And he was always so easy going…..Whenever we went back home to visit, there was always a get together somewhere & our family was never known to be quiet & low key. Going to Phui & Bill’s house was no different & he would let us take over his kitchen, living room, TV & bedrooms….plus eat all of their snacks & drink all of their tea, milk, soda, & his coffee! I will always cherish the day you played Barbie dolls with Meghann when she was young. She was in absolute heaven & I do have the evidence! Uncle Bill, you will be missed by so many & we wish you eternal peace…Thank you for being an awesome uncle & an amazing human being. In your own words “Be good, don’t be yourself!” We love you…

I am so sorry to hear of Bill’s passing – my condolences to his family from my family- may he RIP

Condolences to all friends and family.

Phui – we loved Bill and will miss him terribly. Always a smile, a welcome, a coffee. offering….he enriched so many lives. Our hearts are broken, but we will cherish his memory forever. You were his true soulmate- how lucky you were in love. May he rest in peace and may he always smile upon you- as we know he loved you beyond measure.
Brenda and Pete

When he first came into our lives, my first impression was that he was a strange dude with a crazy sense of humor; “Yeah, he’ll fit right in with our crowd”! Over the years, we got to witness his mellowness, goofiness, and his incredibly kind & generous heart. His strong work ethic was surpassed only by his love & devotion to his family, especially Elena & Phui.
I’d hoped I had more time to visit home; share a laugh, a cuppa instant with some Tim’s, and say “Thank you” for making our lives richer & fuller by sharing his heart. I will miss you, Bill. I love you & wish you peace on your next journey.
To my dear Aunt Phui, I love you & share your grief. May you find strength & comfort from all those who love & support you both. Deepest sympathy to my family & all those who loved him.

Never in my life have I known a nicer person than Bill Coady , the loss of such a friend and person deeply saddens me. Bill was the type of person who easily made friends, who walked into a room and made everyone laugh with this quick wit and funny, yet at times corney jokes. He always had a smile on his face, a listening ear and a hand extended to help anyone in need. He was the most hardworking man and the most dependable friend, father and husband. His family was is life and his friends were treated like family. He was a selfless soul that touched and made better so many lives just by being apart of all ours. To know Bill was to love Bill and if we could all be more like Bill the world would be a better place to live.

My Condolences and comforting prayers to Phee and his daughter Elena, the treasures of his life and to his family and friends. Bill may you rest in peace in the arms of our creator and be reunited with your mom and dad. God Rest your soul.

Phee and the Coady family,
We are so sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. He always made time to give a friendly greeting , tell a funny joke or story to bring a smile to your face . He was extremely hard working and always dependable and respectful. He cherished his family and was proud of you all . May Bill’s gentle soul Rest in Peace .

To Phee and the Coady family, we are deeply saddened to hear the news of Bill’s passing. He was a great friend to all of us, ready to crack a joke and a great worker. He will be dearly missed at the shop. Sincere condolences to you all.

Uncle Bill had such a big heart and a was always giving us a story to laugh about. I will always have great memories of all of us together for Christmases and dinners 🙂 I know he loved our Aunt Jean so much and he will always be watching over her.
