COOK, William Peter "Billy/Willy"
April 15, 1955 - February 20, 2022

After a long and courageous battle with cancer, it is with great sadness the family announces the passing of Billy on Sunday, February, 20th, 2022.  A beloved brother of Marilyn (Rick), Fred, Shirley, Byron, Karen and Lorrie (Gerard).  Grandfather of Liam, Chloe and Quintin and dear uncle and great uncle to many nieces and nephews.  Father of Willy Jr., and father figure to Carl-Joe and Conner and grandpa status to their children.  He will be deeply missed by his dearest and best friend Norma.

Billy loved life with his many passions of cooking, painting, cars, music and the oasis of wildlife in his own backyard.  He will be most remembered by his family and friends for his wildly huge and imaginative storytelling.

The family would like to thank the medical professionals; nurses and personal support workers for their dedication and care over the many years.  A huge thank you to all the volunteer drivers with the CAPS organization, making it possible for Billy to travel to his treatments at different locations, no matter the weather.

Cremation has taken place.  A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, March 19th from 1-4 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 163, 435 Limeridge Road E., Hamilton.  Donations are welcomed to be made to: CAPS (cancer assistance program) and the Cancer Society.

Always in our hearts.
