William Henry MacDonald

February 28, 1943 — February 2, 2024

Of Katrine


On February 2nd, 2024, Huntsville said goodbye to one of its finest with his family by his side.

Bill was born in Huntsville to parents Norman and Helen (nee Wallace) MacDonald on February

28th, 1943. He is now reunited with his beloved wife, Gertie, who predeceased him in 2006. Bill

is survived by his sons Scott (Cheri) and David (Angele) and daughter Susan (Chico).

Grandchildren Christy, Amanda, Hudson, McGregor, Riley; and brother Robert (Bev). Bill is fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by granddaughter Carissa, brothers Norman (Dorily) and Harry (Faye) 



Throughout his career, Bill worked for the District Municipality of Muskoka as Maintenance

Coordinator and the Town of Huntsville as Public Works Superintendent. He knew every road

like the back of his hand and was often called upon for his expertise and knowledge. After

retirement, he loved being part of MacDonald Steel with his son Scott, the staff and customers.

Bill will be remembered for his fantastic sense of humour, incredible work ethic and

unconditional love for his family. Bill cherished the time spent in Kipawa, Quebec, fishing,

boating and enjoying the outdoors. He had a passion for cooking and thoroughly enjoyed trying

new recipes. Always up for an adventure, Bill loved travelling with family and friends. He was a

wealth of knowledge and was known to share a back-in-the-day story now and then.

Everybody loved him; he impacted all who had the pleasure of knowing him. He will be dearly

missed but never forgotten.


In keeping with Bill's wishes, cremation has occurred, and there will be no service. As an

expression of sympathy, memorial donations can be made to Hospice Huntsville or Huntsville

Hospital Foundation. 

In memory of William Henry MacDonald, please consider making a donation to one of the following charities:
