Wolf-Dieter (Bill) Keunecke, of London, passed away peacefully on August 12, 2020, at University Hospital in London in his 84th year.
Bill and his wife Renate began their relationship over 60 years ago, experiencing adventures and creating decades of memories together.
Bill is also survived by sisters Karin Prohl (Uwe †) and Helga Howald (Rick †). Pre-deceased by his parents Emil † and Viktoria † and brother Klaus † (Marilyn). Cherished and beloved Onkel of Christel (Fred), Inge, Karin, Rick (Beth), Ted (Shauna), Chrissie (Glen), Michael (Amy), and Nick (Sara). Bill will be sadly missed by his many great-nieces, nephews and great-great-niece.
Originally from Germany, Bill moved to Canada, settling in the Ilderton area, before investing in his surrounding communities serving as a polished and refined maître d'. Bill mastered this role as the face of a business and will be remembered working in locations from Ipperwash, to London, and even Florida.
Family and friends will always remember Bill as a man of sophistication, always looking dapper, prim, and proper. With the current Covid-19 situation, Bill’s family would like to honour his life with an intimate private family service taking place on the family farm at a later date.
The family would also like to extend a sincere thank you to the doctors and nurses at LHSC University Hospital’s Emergency Department for their support and compassion. Donations are appreciated in Bill’s name to the Canadian Cancer Society.
Arrangements are entrusted to M.Box & Son Funeral Home, 183 Broad Street in Parkhill. Please leave a memory or condolence online at www.GilpinFuneralChapel.com
