With saddened hearts we say goodbye to our Father, William (Billy) Clarence Johnson. He passed away peacefully on April 5th, 2023 at the long term care facility in Northside General Hospital in his 87th year.
William served in the Canadian Army in the 60's and then went on to work and retire from DEVCO in New Waterford, NS. He resided on Daley Road, New Victoria for most of his life where he raised seven children. He was the proud father of Douglas, Gerard (Michele), Darren (Wendy), Sam (Josette), Lisa (Brendan), Brent and Bradley; grandfather of 11 beautiful grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
Besides his parents, Billy was predeceased by brothers, Wayne and Clayton.
He loved classic cars and Pepsi was his drink of choice, besides cold beers, and he was a master at Cribbage.
He truly will be missed and his absence will leave a void in all our hearts.
A gravesite ceremony will take place on Wednesday, August 9, 2023 at 1 p.m. in St. Alphonsus Cemetery, Victoria Mines, where we will lay his ashes to rest along side his parents, Samuel and Margaret (White) Johnson and his brothers, Wayne and Clayton Johnson.
