With sadness, we say farewell to William Ralph “Bill” Sperry. Bill passed away peacefully on the evening of Thursday June 16, 2022, at the Renfrew Victoria Hospital. He was 78. Bill was residing at the Groves Park Lodge in Renfrew and was formerly of Arnprior, Ontario. Beloved son of the late Doug and Mary (Shaw) Sperry, originally of Campbellford, Ontario. Proud and loving father of Heather and Jason (Melissa). Dear brother of Noel (Mary) and uncle to Lee (Sperry), Michael (Sperry), Christopher (Hooper), and Adam (Hooper). Lovingly remembered by Bonnie Sperry. Bill will be missed by his fur-baby Ginger. Bill was a skilled machinist and worked for both Huyck and Playtex Canada. His favorite past times were fishing, birdwatching and sitting on his back deck with a good cup of coffee. His larger-than-life presence and outlook on life will be missed by many.
