He will also be dearly missed by his many colleagues and friends from the CNRHC. As well as the many lives he touched during his years as a paramedic.
Bill was predeceased by his sister Carol Mullett.
Bill was a clear example of a selfless person, He always made sure that everyone around him was taken care of. He spent his life working at the hospital in Grand Falls-Windsor, doing just that. He played many roles there, but is remembered most by his work within the paramedic community. He was pleasant, positive and a pleasure to work with. A prankster at times, keeping everyone on their toes! After 35 years, he retired in 2015. He loved spending quality time with his friends and family, especially his grandchildren. Walking his dog Harley, travelling, kayaking and playing his guitar were some of his favorite ways to pass the time. There was hardly a Sunday missed at his mother, Karen’s! And always helping with the care of his father, William. Both of which he shared much of his time with! Sing-a-longs, and guitar jams would be his expertise at all family gatherings! Any way to get them involved, together, smiling, laughing and singing! As many families, work schedules sometimes made family time hard to come by between siblings but he always made the effort to connect and see them as much as possible, and catch up where they last left off! He truly was a beautiful soul. And will be missed so dearly.
Donations in his memory can be made to the Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Cemetery, Bishop's Falls.
The service will be live streamed on The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception facebook page
