YOUNGSON, William (Bill) – Passed away at University Hospital after a battle with cancer on November 18th, 2013, in his 79th year.  He is survived by his wife Mary, daughters Karen Cholin (Ian) of Thunder Bay, Brenda Youngson of Keswick, stepdaughter Barbara Czyzowski of Toronto, brother Jack (Ann) of Mitchell, sisters Leone and Mary (Ray) of St. Marys, grandchildren James, Heidi and Jessica as well as many nieces and nephews.  Predeceased by his parents Dave and Annie Youngson, brother Gerald, brothers-in-law Bob Conley and Bill Vanderholst, sister-in-law Dorothy Youngson, stepson Stephen Czyzowski and son-in-law Ken Flood.  Bill loved to travel and enjoyed a good picnic by the St. Clair River watching the sail boats go by.  He met his wife while teaching Drivers Ed, and enjoyed working for UWO.  He enjoyed a good joke and always had one to tell. His sense of humour stayed with him until the end.  Bill loved his family and sharing his knowledge with his grandchildren, whether it was gardening or the art of telling a joke, his blue eyes twinkled with joy and laughter.   Memorial visitation will be held at WESTVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL, 709 Wonderland Road North, London, on Thursday, November 21st, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Bill are asked to consider the London Regional Cancer Program.
