McAinsh, William Peter
January 22 1972 - November 4 2020
It is with great sadness the family of Bill McAinsh announce his passing. Through his bravely fought battle with cancer he maintained an appreciation and passion for life. He had been awaiting a liver transplant, but unfortunately after having a routine procedure Bill suddenly became very ill and unexpectedly passed the following day.
Bill touched the lives of many people from various walks of life with his charm and warmth. He was often described as:
"The type of man that would give the shirt of his back to help another."
"A natural athlete with unorthodox techniques"
"A genuine friend with a heart of gold"
"Compassionate and committed to creating peace and harmony"
He enjoyed many interest including; tennis, swimming, gold panning and road trips. Having strong family values, Bill continued efforts to connect with relatives and loved them deeply. He can now rest painlessly and peacefully.

I played with Bill couple of times as part of our tennis group. Remember him saying I gave him a run for his money. He seemed like a kind and genuine person. From his athleticism never even realized he wasnt well. Hope he is in a better place.

Bill was a true athlete and a gentleman. Last time I played tennis with him was in Sept and seeing his intensity on court it never appeared what he was going through - hats off to him , he is a inspiration in our Tennis group.

Bill was a great addition to our tennis group and it wasn't just because of his amazing serve but because he was always respectful, flexible, considerate and kind. I specially remember how nice he was everytime we spoke on the phone when I called to invite him to play. We'll miss him for sure. RIP
