He is survived by his wife of 54 years Rosemary (nee Weedmark), sons: Perry (Beverly) and Wayne, daughter Darlene, four grandchildren; brother John (Elaine), sisters Olga (Glen) and Marianne.   Bill was predeceased by his mother Anne Ledarney-Stock.

Twins William Peter and John Paul were born in Vita, Manitoba August 2, 1942 to Annie Ledarney.  Later joined by sister Olga and Marion.  Early childhood was lived in the Tolstoi area, and received schooling in Dominion City after moving to town.  Bill always mentioned his favourite teacher Jean Baskerville.  Times were tough so many jobs around town were undertaken.  Moving to Winnipeg he worked for various plumbing shops.  On October 5, 1963 he married Rosemary Weedmark.  They were blessed with three children: Perry William, Wayne Robert, and Darlene Joy.  Bill and Rosemary moved back to Dominion City and he started working as Town Water and Sewer Superintendant in 1969.  Working for 33 years, retiring in 2002.  He also operated a U-Pick Strawberry business for several years, affectionately known as “Strawberry Bill”.  He enjoyed camping and fishing with family and friends.  He also enjoyed dancing, hunting, curling, traveling and gambling.  He was happiest when he could be outside.  In 2003 he started having kidney problems and in 2005 suffered a stroke that affected his right side.  With his stubborn nature he just kept on going as strong as possible until November 2017 when he suffered another stroke.  You fought a good race Bill.  No more pain, no more sorrow.  Rest in peace we love you.
