William George Austen Nussey

February 28, 1958April 4, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of William Nussey on April 4th, 2020 at the age of 62. The only son of the late Ada Gurden and Austen Nussey, little brother to five sisters Rosemary, Marg, Linda, Joyce and the late Norma. He was a loving and selfless single father to his three children Peter, Monika (George) and Kylie (Mirnes). Words cannot express how deeply he will be missed by them. He was adored by his two grandchildren Brielle and Oliver who called him “Papa”. He was loved by all who knew him, known for his great sense of humour and will be missed by many nephews, nieces and friends. Bill will also be missed by the staff at Air Canada, which he considered as a second family.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.

I would like to offer my sincere condolences to Bill’s family. It is so hard to lose a Dad , brother and friend and these strange times of isolation make it even harder.
Although Bill was my cousin, I only saw him at larger family gatherings, the last being at Rose’s memorial.
My deepest sympathy for your loss.

I'd like to offer my deepest sympathies to all of Bill's family. I can only imagine how difficult it is under our current situation, and I'm sorry for that. Although Bill was my cousin, I didn't have an opportunity to see him very often, and when I read what everyone has said about him, I regret that I didn't know him better. I know that he was generous in helping the family look after Aunt Rose in her later years. May your many happy memories of Bill help you through this time.

First I'd like to say thank you.. so much to everyone who has written about my dad. you're all SO right. He was the best.

I am Bills baby. his youngest daughter and the one thats most like him in both appearance and personality. My dad is and has been my hero my whole life. I miss him and am thinking of him every moment of every day. He absolutely loved having a grandson. I would send him photos and videos just about every day and Dad would watch them over and over. He always said he couldnt wait until Oli was a little bit older so he could go to Montreal for a few days and show him off. Oliver's Bond with his papa was amazing.
There is no way you're going to be forgotten , Daddy.
We love you.

My sincere condolences to his family, especially his kids. I only met him twice, but he was a very kind gentleman. He spoke very highly of his kids, of whom he was clearly very proud. I am so sorry for your loss, as he was lovely.

My darling Bill, we've had 15 wonderful years together, with a lot laughter and great times. You were the most amazing man I had ever met. We spent many evenings together, talking for hours and making each other laugh. Our humour and our souls were a match. I was hoping we'd have many more years together, but it's not to be.
I loved you when we first met, I love you now and I will always love you.
Rest in peace my dear, I have you safe in my heart.

My sincere condolences to all the family. Air Canada Maintenace was like a big family and Bill was a large part of that family. He had a lot of friends at work and I am proud to say I was one. He could always make you laugh no matter what kind of day you were having. We have a lot of good memories from as far back as the DC9 and the DC8 . Rest in peace Bill you will not be forgotten.

Bill was very generous to me , He picked me up at the airport when needed to go to see Rose. Bill also took me out for lunch and dinner when I had time and never let me pay. I always remember Bill as the youngest Grandson running around at our family gatherings. He never talked too much but wanted to do things---play ball or our favourite game with Aunt Marion-----Kick the can. He had a great sense of humour. I always remember the padlock on the fridge so the kids couldn't eat the food until he got home for supper. Bill was the cook at that time. His kindnesses were many for Dorothy and Aunt Lillian. Rest in peace, Bill. We love you.

To my brother, best friend, my confidant, my rock, you worked so hard at pleasing others, and rarely let others in. So many good times, taken too soon, until we meet again. Love Michael.
