It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Willy (Bill) Richard Eissler at 83 years of age on Friday, October 21, 2022 at his home in Mississauga.
Beloved father to Michelle (Peter), loving Papa to his three grandchildren, Grace, Bridgett and Evelyn, and lovingly remembered by his long-time friend Karin Herbst. Predeceased by his parents Georg and Helene Eissler, and his siblings Bernie (Carla) and Erich (Elke).
Willy came to Canada from Echterdingen, Germany in 1953 when he was 15 years old. Not knowing the language, he worked hard to excel in his studies, and upon graduation was fortunate to be hired by Bell Canada where he would enjoy a long career as a technician for the next 39 years. During his long life, Willy loved a good time and good conversation; he loved to dance and he loved music. He enjoyed travel, cruises and sunny destinations, and he particularly loved his travels back to his hometown to visit with old friends and schoolmates. A bright mind and a passionate person, Willy will be sadly missed by all who knew him in Germany and here in Canada.
To honour his life, we will gather together at Turner & Porter Neweduk Chapel (1981 Dundas St. W., Mississauga) on Wednesday, November 9th from 12-1 pm with the funeral service starting at 1 pm. Reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or the World Wildlife Foundation in his memory.
