With his wife by his side at the Brantford General Hospital on Saturday March 21, 2020. Bill Bonney, of Harley, in his 67th year. Beloved husband of Judy (nee Malcolm) for 47 years. Dad of Janet & Bryan Corning, Marci Bonney & Dave Slack (Slacker), Jeff & Cindy Bonney, Jim & Amber-Starr Bonney, Katie & Tom Nelson. Papa Bill of Trent Corning & Kayla Lavalee, Devin & Grayson Mutter, Theryn Corning, Rhys Corning, Olivia Hatfield, Breanne (Pocahontos) & Thomas Marcucci, Sabrina (Snowflake) & Jamie Cochrane, Presley and Hailey Bonney, William Bonney (Billy Bob), Ali, Justen, Jake, Brianna, and Ryan Nelson. Great grandchildren Emersyn and Skylar Corning. Brother of Rosaland Robinson & Russ Summers, Connie & Rick Reavely, and Gail & Dan Clement. Predeceased by his parents Stuart (1997) & Mary (nee Lewis) (2002), aunts and uncles; Greta & Cecil Deveney, Donna & Walter Sanderson (Kate & Tarz) and Helen Bonney, Earl & Ruby Lewis, Charlie & Gretta Lewis, Jeanne & Harold Adams and George & Kathleen Lewis. Survived by uncle Clinton (Jim) Bonney, brothers and sisters-in-law Marie & the late Richard Treleaven (2020), Don & Carol Malcolm and Doug & Mary Malcolm. Predeceased by in-laws Walter & Ruby Malcolm, brothers-in-law Robert & Hazel Martin, Bruce Malcolm, wood-splitting buddy Arnet McMillan. Also survived by friend & cousin Jeff Sanderson, many nieces, nephews, family & friends.

Bill lived for 65 years on the family farm. He lived for farming, loved cutting wood and making maple syrup. He enjoyed a good green apple fight or corn cob fight, picking red trilliums, snowmobiling, playing hockey, fishing at the pond, cutting wood in the Hatchley swamp with his trusty tractor Christine and watching wrestling and Nascar. When possible, he enjoyed going to the various area tractor pulls with his good buddies Gill, Howard, Andy, Bernie and Dinky. Didn’t really enjoy his dip in the Ottawa River at John & Natalie Hedden’s wedding, but he survived that and many other accidents.

A Celebration of Bill will be held at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to the Keith Ovington Funeral Home, 134 King Street, Burford, Ontario. As expressions of sympathy, donations in Bill’s memory may be made to the Burford Township Historical Society, Burford Tractor Club or a charity of your choice. Keith Ovington 519-449-1112
