In loving memory of William John Ratchford who passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 31st, 2015 at the age of 67. Born in Toronto to the late Charles and Dorothy (nee Crawford) Ratchford. Cherished father of Richard Ratchford (Kristine). Beloved brother of Patrick Ratchford of North Bay and Jo-Anne Mitchell (Earl predeceased). Loving grandfather of Bradley and Juliana Ratchford. Greatly missed by nephew Darin Mitchell (Alison), niece Kristie Madigan (Kelly) and great nephews Jax Mitchell and Ashton Madigan. Special friend to Linda Murray. Bill will be sadly missed by Margaret Witkowski, the Shea family, his many friends and his «fur» grandbaby Winston. Bill was a proud member of Local 95 Insulator’s. He was outgoing, lived life to the fullest and truly enjoyed his annual golf trip to Myrtle Beach and Florida with his son and friends. As per Bill’s wishes there will be no visitation. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations to the Northern Cancer Research Foundation would be appreciated. https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/the-northern-cancer-foundation/.
