Peacefully in the comfort of his home, with a friend at his side, on Friday February 15, 2013, in his 73rd year. Beloved partner of Yorio “Roy” Hayashi for 51 years. Loving son of William and Elora (nee Kerr) Valliere. Predeceased by his sisters Joan and Dorothy. Sorely missed by his extended family and many dear friends. Cremation has taken place. At Bill’s request, there will be no visitation or service. A celebration of his life will be announced and held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations made to The Endangered Animal Sanctuary, which Bill co-founded and was totally dedicated to since 1974, would be appreciated by the family. Condolences received at www.
