William (Bill) Johnston passed away suddenly at home on Sunday, August 15th, 2021 in his 83rd year.  Bill leaves behind his devoted wife Betty of 59 years, children Graham and wife Fiona, Karen and husband Brian.  Doesn’t matter how old they are as they will always be “the children”.  Blessed with three beautiful and talented granddaughters Rhiannon, Kristina and Elizabeth, who he was very proud of. He rediscovered the pleasure of buying toys over the few years with the arrival of his three great grandchildren Eddie, Charlie and Emma.  ToysRUs stock increases were directly linked to Bill’s spending sprees.


Bill was known for his love of a good clean window and should have had shares in Windex! Bill was an avid reader and had Betty visit the local library on a biweekly basis.  The candy bowl was never far out of reach beside his favorite recliner.  Bill was a honest, hardworking man and will deeply missed by those that loved him. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Essa Public Library in Bill’s memory would be greatly appreciated. Messages of condolence may be forwarded to the family through
