William “Bill” Emiry McLeod was born on April 24, 1941, in Chapleau, ON, to Willliam Borden and Georgina Isadora (nee Emiry) McLeod. He passed away peacefully and surrounded by his family on June 5, 2021, in Sudbury, ON. In between, he led an eventful and accomplished life. Bill was an academic (WLU B.B.A & MSU MBA), professor of business at Cambrian College from 1969-98, a businessman, and a published author of over a dozen books on business and Chapleau history, the latest and most significant being “St. John’s (Anglican) Residential Schools”. He was a devoted husband to Sheryl (Ade) for 52 years, loving father to Heather (Jean-Marc Lacoste), David (Carla Royston), and Neil (Jennifer deBarros) and doting grandfather to Paul, Joseph, and Charlie, and cherished cousin to Bonnie Gould, brother-in-law to Hal Ade, Dorothy Covert (Bob), and Rob (predeceased) Ade (Terry) and uncle to many nieces and nephews. He seemed to know almost everyone and had many lifelong and new friends. Bill was a member of the following clubs; the Tim Horton’s Squad, Idylwylde Golf Club, Cambrian Clan, the Eden Point Crew, and the Sunset Chateau Gang in Florida - where he loved to chat about local and world events & politics. What made Bill happy was; his annual trips to see the Spartans homecoming games, travelling, gardening, blueberry picking, making (and drinking) blueberry wine, “amusing” us with his horrible dad-jokes, and cruising in his ’66 Mustang convertible. He was loved, he will be missed, and he will never be forgotten. Thanks to the wonderful Bayshore nurses and PSWs for their compassionate support and help and to the Maison McCulloch Hospice. Please feel free to support either one of these organizations as well as the Northern Cancer Foundation in Bill’s memory.
