Passed away suddenly, but peacefully, at home on June 5, 2013. Predeceased by the love of his life, Frances Pozer. Survived by his son Kel Pozer and his wife Morgan, and his daughter Shannon Haines and her husband David. Loving and devoted grandfather of Tyler, Sean, Tabatha, Gisele, Sterling and William. Brother of Edna Poffenroth (Ron) and his late brother Boyd Pozer. Bill will also be missed by many close friends and relatives, including his step daughter Tami Farrelly and step son Sean Farrelly. A memorial visitation will be held at NEWCASTLE FUNERAL HOME, 386 Mill St S, (just north of 401 at first lights) on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 from 2-4pm and 7-9pm. A memorial service will be held at the funeral home on Thursday, June 13, 2013 at 11am. If so desired, donations to the Parkinson’s Foundation in memory of his wife Frances would be appreciated by the family. Bill was very active in the Newcastle community and loved to discuss current events, politics, the arts or any other topic of the day with so many people. Passionate about hiking, poker and most deeply, his grandkids, he has left a giant hole in our hearts. He will be missed deeply. Condolences may be made online at www.newcastlefuneralhome.com.
