It is with deepest sorrow that we announce the passing of William Bible on January 6, 2023. He will be deeply missed by his wife and soulmate, Helen, of 62 years. He was the cherished and loving father of Debbie (Ian Parrish) and Ron (Kim) and the proud grandfather of Nicole & Danielle. William was the eldest son of Alvin and Gladys Bible of Palgrave, dear brother of Dora Green (Barrie) and predeceased by his sister Ina Walker (Calgary) and brothers John (Orangeville) and Jim (Fergus).
William has resided in Nobleton for 60 years and was very active in the community. One of his most notable roles was his time as chairman of the Nobleton Community Recreation Association, where he played a significant role in rebuilding the Nobleton arena and community center. Once built, Bill spent an enjoyable season playing hockey, and his team decided to continue their friendship by playing ball together over the summer. This was the beginning of the men’s slow-pitch baseball in Nobleton, which is still going strong today. As the men began their first baseball season, they became aware of much-needed improvements in the park. Bill was instrumental in implementing various amenities such as extra ball diamonds, bleachers, lights, double tennis courts, pavilions and many trees to enhance the experience for all. Bill always had a passion for giving back to his family, friends and the community he loved and called home for many years.
