FINLAY, William John (1930-2008)
Retired Vice President and Sales Manager - Strathcona Paper Company
Bill passed away peacefully at Saint Mary's of the Lake in Kingston, Ontario, on July 4, 2008. He leaves his wife, Marjorie DIBB, after 53 years of a very happy marriage. He is also survived by his brother Edward and his children, Bruce (Marjorie) Napanee, Anne (Alan KARY) Toronto, Julie (Rod LANCEFIELD) Kanata and Donald FINLAY, Aurora, Ontario. Bill was a devoted family man whose greatest joy was to be surrounded by his children and his grandchildren, the Lancefield boys, Andy, Bobby and Steven, The Karys, Abigail Joy (Abbie) and Sam, and William James (Jamie) FINLAY. Bill was the fourth generation of a paper-making family and when the Company was sold in 1974 to the Roman Corporation it was the end of an era. It was the last of the independent family-owned mills of its kind in Canada. Bill stayed on with the Roman Corp. as a Vice President and Sales Manager until his retirement in 1988. He grew up in the village of Strathcona and graduated from Queen's University, Science '54 (Mechanical) and the Western School of Business, London, Ontario. Bill took a keen interest in Masonry and was a life member and Past Master of Union Lodge No. 9, Frontenac District. He served as District Deputy Grand Master in 1981/82 and for many years enjoyed the camaraderie of the 81ders. He was a firm believer in Community involvement and for several years ser ved on the Board of Governors of the Lennox and Addington General Hospital and was past Chairman, he was the founding Chair of the Hospital Foundation. His Faith and his Church were very important to Bill and he attended and actively supported Trinity United Church in Napanee for over 50 years. His sense of humour, quick wit and inexhaustible supply of puns will be sadly missed by all who knew him. The family is truly grateful for the support and care of so many, Doctor SOSNOWSKI and Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Community Care Access Centre, St. Elizabeth Heath Care Nurses, and 'We Care' Health Services.
