Retiree Bill Studholme
Passes Away July 15, 2020

William Studholme
1929 - 2020
Retired Jan 1, 1995
22.4 Years Service

It is with great regret that we inform you of the passing
of Retiree Bill Studholme on July 15, 2020. Our sincerest
condolences go out to his wife Marie and entire family.

William (Bill) Earl Studholme, of Brampton, Ontario, passed peacefully in his sleep on Wednesday, July 15, 2020.

Bill is survived by his wife of nine years, Marie Taylor, his daughter Melanie Studholme, son Patrick (Karen) Studholme Scott, daughter-in-law Carole Studholme, brother Harold (Marilyn) Studholme, loving grandchildren Stefan, Kyle, Joshua, Charlotte, Malcolm, Maria and great-grandchildren Camron and Caleb, three step-children, their partners and spouses and many step-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents Norman and Pearl Studholme, his son Shawn Studholme and his wife of 35 years Jo-Ann Studholme.

Bill was born on December 18, 1929 in Toronto. As a child, he learned to love ice skating and dance and became very accomplished in the sports. As a teen he traveled world-wide, competing in ice skating and ballroom dance competitions. He began a career with Ford Motor Company and proudly retired after nearly 40 years of loyal service to the company.

Bill was a genuinely loving and friendly man, full of great stories and belly laughs. He loved to spend time at his cottage with family, boating, fishing, and sitting around the campfire. Bill had a great love of travel and was fortunate enough to visit many countries, including Australia and New Zealand where he connected with other Studholme family through extensive genealogical research. But, Bill was always happiest spending time with friends at the curling club or just talking away the day over a cup of Tim Horton’s coffee and some Timbits. When Bill met Marie after the loss of his wife Jo-Ann, he found a loving companion and friend with whom he truly enjoyed spending his later years. Together they enjoyed theater, travel, and time with friends.
