January 6, 1931 – June 3, 2024

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of William Lloyd Anderson, Junior, on Monday, June 3, 2024, at the age of 93.

Bill was born in Winnipeg on January 6, 1931 to William Lloyd Anderson Senior and his wife Kathleen Agnes (Smith).

He leaves to mourn his wife, Adeline; daughter, Carol (Bernie); sons, Robert (Maureen) and Randy; plus step- children, Debbie (Doug), Karen (Lorne), Janice (Sandip) and Glen.

He is pre-deceased by his parents; his brother, Robert Anderson and his wife, Barbara; niece Terri; son Brent; and stepdaughter Laurie.

He is survived by many grandchildren; great grandchildren; and nieces, Kathy and Nanci.

Bill attended Kelvin High School and St Johns Collegiate in Winnipeg. During his younger years he spent many happy summers with family and friends on Anderson Island at Lake of the Woods.

Bill had an inherited entrepreneurial spirit. He worked with his brother and father in their family business in Winnipeg, owned a camera store in Palm Springs, Taxi and a second-hand store.

Bill and Adeline were married for almost 45 years. They spent many happy times on their 28' Chris Craft wooden boat called the "Rogue", on the Lake of the Woods. They made many lifelong friends during their dock gatherings and participated in the wooden boat Parade for 23 years.

When they weren't boating, they spent their winters in White Rock and Nanaimo, BC. Having a pint in the afternoon at a quaint pub, walking and visiting were their winter highlights. This was a time when Bill was able to connect with his grown children who lived in BC. They enjoyed family get togethers, board games and caring for their home.

Bill eventually succumbed to the ravages of dementia. Though out these years, Bill remained always, a gentleman.

A family memorial will be held at a later date.

Adeline would like to thank Karen, Lorne, Janice and Sandip for all their help and to all the great staff at Poseidon Care Home.

Bill’s family kindly requests that all of his friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by watching the photo-biography above. Please, also consider sharing your own photos, memories, and stories by making use of the comment section on this page.
