Bill Naylor

NAYLOR, Bill - It is with deep sorrow that the family of William (Bill) Clarence Naylor regretfully announce his death. Born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on July 7, 1938, he succumbed to illness on January 28, 2019 at the Brockville General Hospital. Bill was preceded into death by his mother Myrtle, his father Clarence, and his beloved sister Sharon Vandrish. Throughout his entire life, he remained close to his surviving siblings and family, Mary and her husband Colin McGlynn, Harry and his wife Virginia, and Jocelyn Savard. He was completely devoted to his wife and partner of 59 years Colette (Page), who now resides at St. Lawrence Lodge. In addition to their sons, Brian and Paul, his daughter Kim, her husband Carl Wiens and their sons Jacob and Lucas brought him tremendous pride and joy. From his youth into adulthood, the Boy Scouts of Canada were a formative source of values he carried into all aspects of his personal and professional life. Bill embraced life and work, from his first paper route to his retirement after 42 years with DuPont of Canada. It was a career that allowed him, with the support of his wife Colette, to travel the world that he was so keen to explore. His entire family would like to express his deep gratitude to the people in the local organizations that provided invaluable support and guidance in Bill and Colette's Alzheimer's journey. Irvine Funeral Home will coordinate donations to the local branches of the Alzheimer Society, CPHC, and SMILE. The family would like to express our great appreciation to the doctors, nurses, and staff of Brockville General Hospital's ER and ICU departments for their incredible dedication and dignity in their care of Bill. Bill will be honoured on Saturday, February 16, 2019 at IRVINE FUNERAL HOME , 4 James St. E., Brockville. There will be a general reception and visitation from 1-4 pm with family tributes taking place at 3 pm. Messages of condolence and donations may be placed online at

In Sympathy
Posted by Dorothy (Ostler) Snetsinger (Friend and Neighbors) On Saturday, February 2, 2019
Dear Mary, Colin and Families and Bill's Family:

My deepest sympathy in the loss of Bill. We were neighbors and all had a great time as kids playing together on Sixth St.

May God rest his soul and may He bless you all at this very sad time in life.

(I had not seen Bill in years and years but he still looked the same to me)/.

Precious memories of him will remain in your hearts forever.

You Are in My Prayers, Love Dorothy
