He was born on February 11, 1934, the first child of William Michael Stafford and Margaret Bertha (Hansen) of St John, NB. Bill was foremost a loving husband and father, a grandfather and a great-grandfather. He was a devout Catholic and a Fourth Degree Knight of Columbus. Bill forged ahead in life, striving to live a life worthy of his Christian calling. In his dark moments, sparks from his beloved wife, Lorraine, his siblings, fellow knights, close friends, and Fr. Aidan rekindled his life. The Holy Mass, Eucharistic adoration, Divine Mercy, the Rosary, and charitable works were central to Bill's spirituality. Bill has always been a good sports fan. He is an unwavering supporter of the Toronto Maple Leafs, in his words, "one hell of a hockey team. " Bill firmly believed that the Toronto Maple Leafs would win the Stanley Cup, "when hell freezes over. " William Gerald Staffford is predeceased by his parents, wife Lorraine Stafford (Whyte), and junior brother Bernie Stafford (& Betty "Betty Lou" Stafford). Bill will be sadly missed by his brother Edward Stafford, his children Fred Ryan Stafford (Barbara Virginia), Anne Marie McLauglain (Danny Auther McLauglain), Stephen Gerald Stafford, his adopted son Fr. Aidan Dasaah, his four grandchildren, one great-grandchild, his 6 nephews, 2 nieces, 2 great-nieces, and his 4 great-nephews. Bill will be fondly remembered by his extended family, Lorraine's entire family and his many fellow church parishioners and friends in the Smiths Falls and surrounding communities.
