In Celebration of

A. William "Bill" Mason

December 24, 1916 -  December 3, 2018

A. William (Bill) Mason passed away peacefully in OTMH on December 3rd, 3 weeks from his 102nd birthday. He was predeceased by his wife of 69 years, Margaret, and his daughter, Jane. He is survived by his children Derek (Elaine), Tim, Wendy (Stephen) and Philip (Line), his 4 grandchildren Michael, Holly, Kevin and Blake, 2 great-grandchildren, his sister Betty and brother Bob.
Bill was proud of the years he spent in the RCAF during WWII, attaining the rank of Flight Lieutenant. Settling in Oakville after the war, he met and married Margaret, building their home and establishing a secure place for raising a family. He founded and operated his own general contractor’s business for over 30 years.

Bill was a devoted member of his church and served his community on both Municipal and Regional Councils. Post-retirement he worked with other volunteers building churches for the Inuit as part of Operation Beaver.
Summers at their cottage in Muskoka were a major part of family life. He enjoyed wilderness canoeing, ski trips to The Townships as well as golf, well into his nineties. With the assistance of his neighbours and others in the community, he lived in his home until his passing. Fortunate enough to still ride his bicycle and tend to his roses.

Friends may call at the Turner & Porter “Neweduk-Erin Mills” Chapel, 1981 Dundas St. W., Mississauga (just east of Erin Mills Pkwy) on Friday from 5-8 p.m. Funeral Service will be held at St. Peter’s Anglican Erindale Church, 3041 Mississauga Rd., on Saturday, December 8, 2018 at 1 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Toronto Star Fresh Air Fund.
