It is with heavy hearts that the family of William “Bill” Calhoun of Quispamsis announce his sudden passing, which occurred on Monday, June 3, 2019 at his home. Born on February 11, 1953 in Saint John, he was the son of the late William Henry and Mary Pauline (Olsen) Calhoun.
Bill previously worked on the Princess of Acadia for Bay Ferries. He was the best brother that anyone could have asked for and will be greatly missed by his sister Brenda, who will always remember the “little things” that he did for her. Bill looked forward to the times spent with those he loved and was thought of as a father figure by his nieces and nephew. He always held a special place in his heart for animals, was an avid sports fan, enjoyed music and loved science fiction. Bill was a loyal Game of Thrones fan and strongly felt that Daeny was the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.
In addition to his sister, Brenda, Bill is survived by his nieces, Jennifer Cooley (William) of Missouri and Melanie Greenlaw (David Isaac - who especially enjoyed their chats and thought the world of Bill) of British Columbia; nephew, Raymond Greenlaw (Jihye Bae) of Ontario; great-niece, Chloe; great-nephew, Liam and beloved dog, Leo. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brother-in-law, Gary Greenlaw.
