In loving memory of William (Bill)Turcotte, 79 years, who passed away Tuesday, March 15th, 2022, at Health Sciences North in Sudbury. Beloved husband of 56 years to Raymonde Turcotte (née Lamothe). Loving father of Daryl Turcotte (Monica), Lorri Levesque (Marc), Jamie Turcotte (Jody) and Cathy Turcotte (Gary St Georges predeceased).

William was born January 30, 1943, to Eugene and Fleurette Turcotte (both predeceased). William graduated from St Charles College in 1961. As a young adult he was an avid pool player and golfer. After graduation he chose a career with the Canadian Pacific Railway where he retired as a Locomotive Engineer.
His greatest joy in life was his family. His pride of his children and grandchildren was apparent to everyone he talked to. He also loved camping, traveling with his trailers throughout North America and his winters in Florida. He will be sorely missed by all who loved him.
At his request, there will be no visitation or service. In lieu of flowers donations in William’s memory can be made directly to the Canadian Diabetes Association http://www.diabetes.ca/.
