My deepest condolences go out to Brian Wright, Brad Wright (Martine), Lori Snake (John 2021), Lana Plank (Mark), and Dan Wright (Ann).

Respected brother-in-law of Robert Gray and his wife Janise, William Gray and his wife Ann, and Marie Van Waes (Brian). Remembered with warmth and affection by a large number of nieces, nephews, great nieces, and great nephews.
Bill worked the land all of his life and was involved in the life of both his community and his church. He was a brother, uncle, son, and friend to many people in addition to being a proud father and papa. He would go out of his way to assist anyone who was in need and has a generous heart. You might frequently find him crop touring the county in his brown GM truck, beer in hand, and offering advise to the local farmers who lived nearby. Bill had a strong affection for his family, which served as the driving force behind the family’s success.
He participated in a variety of hobbies, but tractor pulling was his absolute favorite. He began with a 4440 but eventually upgraded to an OOOH Deere 4320 and began pulling all over Ontario and the midwestern states of the United States. Bill was a friendly and outgoing person who made new acquaintances wherever he went. The cremation process has been completed. On the Saturday, December 17, 2022, from one to five in the afternoon, there will be a celebration of Bill’s life at the Royal Canadian Legion Br. 252 in Bothwell.
For the outpouring of love and help over the past two years, the family would like to express their gratitude to the ALS Society of Windsor/Essex, the ALS Clinic in London, Care-partners, Dr. Johnson, and all of their family and friends. ALS did not win, he did. If you so choose, you can make a contribution to the ALS Society of Windsor and Essex.
