William (Bill) George Watling

d. December 3, 2017

William George Watling passed away December 3, 2017, from cancer, at Brampton William Osler Hospital.
He was the husband of Irene Carmel (MacDonald) Watling , a good father to his loving children, Jennifer (Robert) Mcknight, Shane and Jamie, who were all with him as he passed.
He was very much loved by his family, he had one granddaughter Chloe (Shane) who will dearly miss him, all from Brampton ON, son of the late Icyphene (Green) Watling and The late George Watling, One brother Robert Kenneth (Lily Beth) and half brother Bill MacDonald (Lily); three nieces Lori Watling (Galen Augustine) of Eel Ground,NB and their daughter Aiyana Augustine, Joni Watling (Eric Cross) of James Town NC and her daughter Kaitlin Basley, and Icyphene Watling (Robert- LilyBeth) and his favorite nephew Robert (BillyBob) Watling (Robert-LilyBeth) who adored his uncle Bill.
When Bill and Bob's mother brought them home from ON in 1951 their grand parents Bunn and Lucy Green took them in, thank GOD for that, they were so kind and had a lot to do with their up bringing. Later on they met the Willard and Clara Watling family, they were also so good to us.

Bill loved to play baseball and hockey, he was very good at both. His team mates called him " Whipper " because of how fast he could throw the baseball. He had a pitch (knuckle curve) which was almost impossible to hit, so his brother Bob says. He coached his son Shane in hockey. He also loved football and he left home after high school to try to make the Toronto Argos but an injury at an Argo tryout prevented him from making the team. He was a super brother and father and will be dearly missed. He never forgot his Newcastle home as he would come home every year to visit his family and make it a point to visit all his friends. Every time he went back, a tear would come to my eye, says Bob. He was a good Christian, loved "GOD" and to go to Rehoboth Worship Center in Brampton and River of Life Church when visiting Miramichi.

The Two Brothers
Once we were two and now there is one, for the love we had together was compared to none.
My heart is broken now that you are gone, I promise to you that I'll always carry on.
You will never be forgotten from your family and mine as we go through this life one day at a time.
I surely will love and miss you sweet William
