In his 70th year, passed away peacefully on Monday, August 26, 2019, with his family by his side.

Bill was predeceased by his parents Ken and Irene Copeland and sister Doris. He was a loving husband to Gerry (Geraldine) Copeland and a loving father to their three children, Ken, Amy and Erin. He was a proud Grandpa to Hayden Stahlbaum. He will be dearly missed by his siblings Brian (Patty) Copeland of Alberta, Vivian (Brian) Tosh of Alberta and Laurene Drudge of Kitchener.
