Obituary for William Shillington

SHILLINGTON, William (Bill) Robert of Trenton - following a brief illness, passed away in his 84th year at Belleville General Hospital, with his loving wife at his side and his family close-by, on 11th April 2017. Bill was the son of the late Jack Bernie Shillington of London and Mary Agnes (Mayme) Horan of Prescott.
Bill is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Margaret “Maggie” Anne, his sons Brian (Trudy) of Frankford, Paul of Trenton and Gary of Trenton and daughter Brenda Jean (Kurt) of Toronto, grandchildren, Tara, Tabitha, Mark, Daphne, Sierra, Austin, Michael, Connor, Elizabeth, Zachary and five great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister Barbara Amos of Kitchener and his brother John of St. Catharines.
Bill served 22 years in the RCAF, retiring to his home in Trenton in 1975, followed by 22 years with Parks Canada on the Trent-Severn Waterway, most memorably as the Bridgemaster at Carrying Place on the Murray Canal and later as the Lockmaster at Sidney Lock #2 until he retired in 1997.
As a Parks Canada employee he was an ambassador for the Trent-Severn Waterway where he and his dog Tanner had the good fortune to welcome local boaters, picnickers and fisherman, as well as travelers from all over the world. Bill is surely remembered by countless university summer students for his teaching with respect to the value of a strong work ethic and in taking pride in maintaining the grounds and facilities of the Historic Trent-Severn Lock stations.
He was a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 110, Trenton where he was a tireless volunteer, receiving the Legionnaire of the Year Award in 2005 and of the 413 Wing, RCAF Association, Trenton.
He was a kind, gentle and honourable man, with a mischievous sense of humour. He will be missed by all who knew him.
Friends and family are invited to join in the Celebration of Bill’s life at the 413 Wing, RCAF Association, 230 North Murray Street, Trenton, on Friday, April 21st 2017, at 11:00 a.m. Visitation 11:00 to 11:45 a.m.; Royal Canadian Legion Branch 110/413 Wing RCAF Association Memorial Service at 11:45 a.m.; Celebration of Bill’s Life will commence at 12:00 noon with Lunch and Fellowship 1:00 to 4 p.m.
As an expression of sympathy in lieu of flowers, Bill had requested that donations be made to either War Amps Champs or Make a Wish, Canada.
The family wishes to acknowledge the tremendous support, professionalism and kindness of the staff of Belleville General Hospital, especially the Nursing and PSW staff of Quinte 5.
Arrangements entrusted to the RUSHNELL FUNERAL CENTRE, 60 Division Street, Trenton (613-392-2111). On-line condolences at www.rushnellfamilyservices.com
