(1924-2018) On September 16, 2018, in the presence of family, Bill passed into eternal glory with his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He was predeceased by his wife, Shirley (2010), with whom he celebrated 62 years of marriage. Predeceased by his son, Ross (2011), he leaves behind son, David and daughter Cheryl Taggart (Rick). As well, he was blessed with 5 grandchildren; Lindsay and Sarah Masters, Traci Taggart (Elliott), Staci Tipper (Stuart) and Lynn Taggart; 6 great grandchildren Seth, Bryn, Rhys, Chloe, Faith and Cody. After 47 years as a photographer, Bill closed the doors on Master’s Studio, set the camera down and turned his attention to serving others through his work with the foodbank, visitation and lay-ministry. Even as a resident in retirement and long-term care, he tried to find a way to serve. The family would like to thank the dedicated staff of the Leamington Mennonite Home for welcoming him “home” and treating him with kindness, dignity and humour. As well, the family is grateful to the nurses of Erie Shores Healthcare (ER and 2 North) for their compassion during his final journey. In lieu of flowers, and at Bill’s request, memorial donations to the Leamington Mennonite Home would be appreciated.
