Obituary

Obituary for William Anton "Will" Wilson

It is with great sadness that the family of William Anton Wilson announces that Will passed away suddenly but peacefully on May 22, 2020, at the age of 62. William was born on March 30, 1958, in Ely, England, the eldest child to Anthony and Ruth Wilson.

William is survived by the Love of his Life, Robin, their four amazing children Mikaela (Tim), Darion (Erin), Nikolas (Sam), and Kira (Mohammad), and his grandchildren Lexi and Clayton. He will also be greatly missed by his father, his mother, and his siblings Alex, Donna, and Elias.

William was a wonderful son, husband, father, and grandfather. He loved and truly appreciated the uniqueness of each of his children and deeply respected them for the individual adults they had become. He was an absolute wealth of knowledge; the kids never needed Google, they just went to their Dad. When Clayton asked, "Oh, but why?" Grampy always had the answer, in great detail!

With a new project always on the go, Will was constantly initiating conversations with new people to learn new skills. Whether in person or online, people of all ages, from all over the world, would warm to his charming, charismatic, and gentle nature. He really was larger than life and his laughter and light will always be remembered.

William touched the lives of many throughout his endeavors, but the most profound achievement in his life was the love he felt for his lovely wife Robin. She was his whole life and he loved her madly, never wanting to go anywhere without her.

Taken too soon, the memory of William is etched in our hearts. He is greatly loved and will always be missed but never forgotten.

A gathering of friends and family at our home will be held later this summer. When available, details will be posted here and on Will's LinkedIn page. Everyone who wants to attend will be welcome.

In lieu of flowers or memorials, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation in William's name.

Willy was a bright, funny, talented and loyal Assistant Editor and Post Supervisor (although often uncredited). We all loved working with him. RIP Willy, we'll miss you!

Will and I worked together in an animation studio where he was part of the IT team. He was always very helpful, kind and patient. Much love and sincerest condolences to his family.

I'm so sorry to hear this news. I worked with Will at Bardel a few years ago and he was such a wonderful person. Caring, helpful, and knowledgeable, he always went the extra mile and always had a smile for us. It was a pleasure working with him and I will remember his kindness, his intelligence and his ability to connect genuinely with others. I am so sad for his family and sorry for their loss. Will, you will be so greatly missed.

As a nearby neighbour, I just got to know Will for a small time in the last few months. But from this limited contact I was able to learn that Will was a warm and charming person and one I especially respected and appreciated because of his skill and interest in horology. And in the few short conversations I had with him, I gained a view of some relevant issues as well as was intrigued by his wider intellectual knowledge and interests.
I [as many others] will be the poorer now for not being able to connect in the future with Will. His passing was a shock and I will miss the possibilities.
Our condolences to Robin and the the family.
Mike Allen and Glennis Wright

Willy and his brother Alex were a large part of my childhood. I am teaching my 17 year old Lucy to drive in England at the moment and was recounting the first time anyone ever let me drive only a couple of days ago. Willie put me behind the wheel of his muscle car (I believe a 357 Malibu but stand to be corrected!) If you would like to know how old I was I would refer you to a lawyer (I could see over the steering wheel...) We drove at 40 mph down a crowned gravel road and didn't slow down when passing another car - all the while Willie laughing. I remember mostly his sense of humour, as well as his generous and intellectual personality. My sincere condolences to Robin and your entire family on his passing - his memory lives on with me. Anthony W.
