In Memory of William "Bill" Munro
MUNRO, "Bill" William Robert (retired OPP Sergeant) passed peacefully at home on May 9th, 2022 with family at his side. Bill was in his 78th year when his courageous battle with cancer ended. Beloved husband of Kathleen "Kay" for 57 years, loving father of Elaine Rothwell (Mark), James (Shannon) and Robert (Marisa) and grandfather to Colleen, Brian, Keagan, Aidan, McKenna, Jacob, Ben and Nicolas. Bill grew up in the Windsor-Harrow area on a farm and was a well-rounded athlete who played football, baseball and hockey. Bill’s other talents led him to build his first family home in Ridgetown at the onset of his police career. Bill's promotion and transfer brought the family to North Bay in 1979 until retirement (32 years O.P.P. service). His true happy place was fishing and hunting in the North Bay and surrounding area. Bill's love for the outdoors continued into his retirement for 25 more years as he and Kay owned and operated Lake Point Cottages and Fishing Charters where Bill earned the title "Walleye Willey" on Lake Nipissing! When he found time, Bill enjoyed the Lake Point peninsula sunsets, bonfires and passing boaters.
Bill is predeceased by his parents William and Olga Munro (Bashura) and stepmother Gerri Munro. He is survived by his brother Brian Munro (Sandra), half brother John Munro (Mary), sister-in-laws Ann Eichenburger (Dennis) and Beverly Agla (predeceased Raymond). Respecting Bill's wishes, a celebration of life will commence later with family. Bill’s family would also like to thank Dr. Lecki, Dr. Abeysinghe and Para Med nurse Chelsea for their continued care.
