BOARD MEMBER BILL ARCHIBALD PASSES AWAY SUDDENLY
He will be Remembered for his Tireless Work with BAFHT
Bill Archibald, Vice Chairman of BAFHT’s Board of Directors, passed away suddenly on November 7, at his home. Bill will be remembered for his dry wit and his tireless work for the Bluewater Area Family Health Team. He was a long-serving member of the Board and was active on several sub-committees.
Baseball was Bill’s major passion and he played as regularly as possible in a local league, but his love of the game had to be shared with his voluntary work at the BAFHT clinic – on several occasions he would finish a meeting and join his colleagues midway through a game.
Bill was only 64, but remained extremely active and when not playing baseball or organizing car rallies – he took on part-time work, ‘Occupational therapy’, he called it. His gentle, kind-hearted ways were a gift to all who knew him and he gave generously of his time to the local community and helping friends.
Bill is survived by his spouse, Audrey, siblings-in-law and a wide circle of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. He will be sorely missed by all that knew him, and especially those he met while working on the Board.
