Obituary of John "Bill" William Rathbone

John (Bill)  William Rathbone, age 67, passed away peacefully on Tuesday September 3,  2019, at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, surrounded by friends and  family. 

He was born April 23, 1952 to John and Ilene Rathbone, the  second of two children.  He was a graduate (1971) of Sir Wilfrid Laurier  C.I. and graduated with a BSc. in Physiology and Pharmacology  from the University of Western Ontario in 1975.  Bill worked as a sales  representative in Toronto for Xerox, Yellow Pages, and Royal Lepage,  where he displayed his exceptional sociability, charisma, and sense of  humour.  Bill loved movies, cars, skiing, and spending time with his  friends and family.

He is survived by his children, John, Daniel, and  Elizabeth, his sister Sharon, his grandchildren, Jack and Isla, and his  nieces and nephews. 

Bill will be put to rest in a private burial, with a  public memorial to take place in the future.
