February 5, 1957 – May 3, 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of William Alexander Hay, who passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on May 3, 2022.
William lived an extraordinary life. William was a loving father and husband, a friend to many, a three continent hotelier, an international businessman, an entrepreneur, an accomplished athlete, and a devoted volunteer.
William had a life of adventure. He was loved by so many and we will cherish the memories, stories and laughter forever.
Look up at the stars, I am the one blinking, I will always be with you and I am okay.
