It is with great sadness that the family of the late William (Bill) Skinner announce his peaceful passing at the age of 76, on November 25, 2020 at the Northern Lights Regional Health Center in Fort McMurray, Alberta.
Bill leaves to mourn his loving wife Madonna, daughters Darlene (Robin) and Brenda (Allan), sons Dean (Cyndi) and Donnie (Jen), brothers Henry (Linda) and George (Elaine), sisters Dinah (John), Ernestine (Dan), and Sarah (Bernard [deceased]). Grandchildren; Stephanie (Chris), Robyn (Scott), Matt and Ben, Great Grandchildren Emily, Isabelle, Charlotte, and Norah, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Bill was predeceased by his parents George and Mary Skinner, brothers Leo, Kevin and Isaac, sisters Minnie and Tina, nephews Ashley, Dwayne and Scott, and grandson Jonathan.
Bill loved music and family gatherings. He was especially happy when he was playing accordion accompanied by his brothers playing guitars. He raised his family in Stephenville, Newfoundland before moving to Fort McMurray, where he spent the last 16 years of his life surrounded by everyone he loved. His family and friends meant everything to him.
Special thanks go out to the medical staff at the NLRHC who went above and beyond with his care.
The impact he left on everyone who met him will forever stand the test of time. He will be missed by all who knew him.
