1947 – 2020
It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of our beloved Husband, Dad, Grandpa, Brother and Uncle William (Bill) Franklin Joyce, who passed away at Kin Place on May 18, 2020.
Left to mourn his passing is his beloved wife of 44 years Audrey (nee Coates) Joyce, his two children Chris (Kelly) and Tracey. He is survived by his grandchildren Autumn, Jesse and Hunter. He leaves his two brothers John (Carol) and Robert (Janny).
William was an RCMP Corporal who served in Manitoba and Ontario. He worked as a bodyguard for Pierre Trudeau and Lester B. Pearson. He had many stories to tell. He worked during the FIQ crisis.
He loved to tell stories and was a devoted family man. He retired in 1997 and resided in Whitemouth. He got bored so he spent his retirement years working for the Winnipeg Sheriff’s Office.
As per Bill’s request cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will take place once we are able to gather.
In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society.Print This Obituary & Condolences
