It is with great sadness that the family of William "Bill" Isaac Jeffrey, age 70, announces his passing which occurred on Friday, March 2, 2018 at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital, Fredericton. Born in Young’s Cove, NB on May 20, 1947, he was the son of the late Alfred and Elizabeth (Gilbert) Jeffrey.
Bill is survived by his loving wife, Sylvia Anne (Jones) Jeffrey; sons: Shawn Jeffrey and his wife, Christina of Burlington, ON, and Mike Jeffrey and his wife, Julie of Kingston, ON; grandchildren: Sophia, Joshua, Malorie and Lauren; sister, Dorothy Tupper and her husband, Pern of Jemseg, NB; as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins. Besides his parents, Bill was predeceased by his infant sister Marlene Louise Jeffrey.
Bill and Sylvia owned and operated Jeffrey's Corner Store in Cambridge-Narrows. While managing the store he worked for Canada Post delivering mail. During this time, he also sold real estate with Century 21 in his spare time. His dedication and love for the community was evident over the 25 years he spent volunteering with the fire department. He truly enjoyed spending time with people in the store and hearing about the stories and events of their lives. He had the ability to see the humourous aspect of any situation. The positive outlook he had on life was a true inspiration to his family and acquaintances. His passion was the love he had for his four grandchildren. Spending time with them was a real highlight in his life. Bill was known for spending many hours working in his garden.
