William John Mullins
April 10, 1946 – October 7, 2020

William "Bill" John Mullins, Age 74, of Peterborough, Ontario passed away after a long battle with cancer. Due to current restriction on gatherings, there will not be a funeral service held. However, a celebration of Bill’s life will be scheduled once allowed and an announcement will be made for all who are interested.

Bill was born on April 10, 1946 in Limerick, Ireland. He was the son of the late Thomas A. Mullins and Christina (nee Eble) Mullins both formerly from Ireland. In 1956, Bill along with his parents and siblings left Ireland and settled in North Augusta, Ontario. Canada presented many new and exciting opportunities for the family. Upon their arrival, Bill and his siblings attended elementary school in a small one room schoolhouse. The family then moved to Brockville where Bill attended High School at Brockville Collegiate Institute and he went on to Carleton University in Ottawa.

An entrepreneur and full of ambition, Bill moved to Toronto to begin his career. He never missed an opportunity and was always up for an adventure. One Saturday morning while passing a tennis court, he noticed and would soon marry Ms. Brenda French. Bill and Brenda would go on to start a family and have two beautiful children: David and Jennifer.

Known to his close friends and family as “Willie,” Bill was a lover of music. As a young man, he loved to play the guitar and sing Irish songs. He was dedicated to work and strived for success. Bill spent most of his career in real estate and the Insurance Industry where he owned and operated a successful brokerage for 10 years. In his later years, his affinity for computers and solving complex problems led him to launch an online blog where he provided his readers with instrumental guidance and support.

Bill is lovingly survived by his two children: David (Shefali) Mullins, and Jennifer Mullins, both of Toronto, Ontario; three grandchildren: Neala, Belle, and Meara; four siblings: Annette (Grant) McLaughlin, Thomas “Tony” Mullins, Jr., Christina (Ken) Johns, and John J. Mullins.

In lieu of flowers, donations to The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) would be greatly appreciated by the family:

My thoughts and prayers are with the Mullins family. My memories of Willie go way back to when I was just a little girl and we would go upstate to visit our country cousins. Willie was 15 years older than me, so I was always in awe that I could have a "adult" cousin. That didn't make much sense to my little girl brain. My fondest memory of Willie was the time he sang The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. I don't think I knew the song before I heard him sing it, and I was mesmerized by the story and the mournful way he sang it. Now, that song and Willie are fully connected in my mind. I can't hear the song and not think of him, or think of him and not hear that song in my mind.

Wishing you peace and comfort during this time of loss.
With love, Ann (L'Estrange) Paneitz

My sincere condolences to the entire Mullins family. Rest in peace William. I still live in Brockville, Ontario & when I was in my much younger years, I remember the family very well, especially when they lived on James Street in Brockville. I was a good friend to my buddy Tony whom I went to school with, played baseball against him & joined the boy scouts with him. I believe William had a nickname which was "Willy". Willy was real down-to-earth guy and always carried a smile wherever he went. He will be missed by all that knew him. Hang in there Tony. You still have a great wonderful family to be very proud of. I truly miss the old friendship we had. All the very best to your family. I know Willy is a better place now looking down on all of you with that wonderful smile as always. Best regards. Stay safe & healthy.

May The Road Rise Up to Meet You
An Irish Blessing: Originally written in Old Gaelic

May the joy and peace surround you, contentment latch your door and happiness be with you and bless you evermore.
May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palms of his hands.
May you live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live
May the saddest day of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past.
May the Lord keep you in His hand and never close His fist too tight.
May there be a generation of children on the children of your children.
May Saint Patrick guard you wherever you go, and guide you in whatever you do, and may his loving protection be a blessing to you always.

Bill’s favorite poem. May you rest in peace. Brenda
