It is with profound sadness that after a courageous battle with cancer, a husband, father and grandfather, William "Bill" Durant passed away at the Sackville Memorial Hospital, age 82, on January 22, 2022.

Left to mourn is Bill's beloved spouse, Paulette of 58 years, daughter Michelle (Graham), son John (Nadine) and cherished granddaughters, Olivia Grace Durant and Laura Claire Durant. Bill is also survived by his sisters Margaret Beaver and Hermine LeBlanc, as well as several nieces and nephews. 

He was predeceased by siblings John Durant and Josephine Boyd.

Bill will be remembered by the community for his 35 years at Mount Allison University and Tantramar Regional High School where he thoroughly enjoyed his profession and students. He equally enjoyed his volunteering as a Town Councilor, and member of many groups and committees. It was his passion to improve lives of others as best he could through better education.

Arrangements have been entrusted into the care and supervision of Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge Street, Sackville, NB (506-364-1300). In keeping with Bill's wishes, cremation has taken place. A Funeral Mass Celebration will be held on Saturday, May 28, 2022 at 10 AM from St. Vincent's Roman Catholic Church, followed by internment in the Sackville Cemetery.  All are then invited back to the Jones Funeral Home for a reception and to continue to celebrate Bill's life.

In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the Drew Nursing Home, the Sackville Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, or a charity of one's choice.

Sharing of memories and condolences may be sent to the family by visiting the online memorial at www.jonesfuneralhome.ca or through the Jones funeral Home Facebook Page.
