William (Bill) Lawrence Enouy

ENOUY, William (Bill) Lawrence - October 24, 1946 - May 24, 2019 It is with sadness that the Enouy family announces the passing of Bill at the Kirkland Lake and District Hospital with his family by his side. Bill is survived by his wife of 47 years Lynda (Tait), his son Drew, and his brother Dave. Also left to mourn him are his sister in law Sandra Schmidt (Brian), brother in law John Tait, and his niece and nephews Joey, Gavin, Megan (Alan), Robert, and Christopher. Bill will be remembered for his intense dedication to Kirkland Lake through his seven terms on town council, four of those as Mayor. His volunteer work as one of Kirkland Lakeís finest, fiercest, and funniest hockey coaches made him beloved in Kirkland Lake and respected across Ontario. Also known to many as an intense fastball player and coach. Bill spent over 30 years as an elementary school teacher mostly at King George Public School. Bill had one of the sharpest witís and was always the funniest person in any room that he walked into. He loved everything about this small town that he called home and was always battling to make it the best it could be. He believed in working together and trusting people to do the job. The family would like to thank all of our friends, the staff at KDH, FRENCH FAMILY FUNERAL HOME , Emilie Chamaillard, Leona Connelly and the many people who have reached out to send their love or to share a treasured memory. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made in Billís name to the CJKL Christmas Wish Program (PO Box 430, Kirkland Lake, ON P2N 3J4). A celebration of life will take place on Friday June 7th at Heritage North from Noon-2pm.13337565

Bill was a good friend when we were growing up in Kirkland Lake. We played baseball together and were defence partners one year for the Legion bantams. It has been half a century but I remember him fondly - as a true character in the best sense of the word. I am very sorry to hear of his passing. My condolences to his family.

So sad to hear about Bill. We shared many a beer at the Princess back in the day and I always loved his intellect. Kinda of a pretty nice guy. too, Man, I feel like I'm about the only one left. But L.H.T. is still around and we communicated not too long ago. It's a race to the finish line, Lorrie!
Thank you Bill

It was so disappointing to hear of Bill's passing. Sincerest condolences to his family. Bill was such a good man. I am one of many that Bill taught through coaching to be good citizens, good sportsmen and the deep value of community. He also stressed the importance of attending school and persuing education. From an early age in my life Bill was a friend, mentor and an example to follow. His lessons are for life and he will be dearly missed but never forgoten.
