William (Bill) Third born August 2, 1940 passed away September 18, 2017 with his daughters by his side.  

Bill was born in Leross, Saskatchewan and moved to Campbell River as a teenager.  

He excelled in all sports and was a terrific pitcher known for his knuckleball.  He loved his cars and anything with an engine.  He loved to travel, soak up the sun, dance and enjoy a good rum and coke.  

Bill’s health was impaired by Parkinsons and he spent the last 10 months with the caring staff of Sunshine Manor. 

He is survived by his sister, Irene, his daughters Rhonda, Cynde, Tara and son Chad along their spouses Mark, Steve A, Steve B and Stacey. 

He is also survived by his grandchildren Rachel, Zac and Taryn, Laney, Jayda and Mason and Kamryn and Mallory plus numerous nieces and nephews.  

The family would like to thank Auntie Irene and all the staff at Sunshine Manor for giving Bill all their loving attention.  No service at Bill’s request. 

Your strong heart carried you far Dad but rest now – you’ve got a dance to go to.
