January 18, 1933 - February 23, 2023
Our father and Opa passed away at 90 years old. In his words he said “I am leaving on a new adventure trip into the sky to sail through the clouds.”
William was born in Haarlem, Netherlands. After being raised during the 2nd World War he met and married Johanna Schutte while serving in the army. Bill and Ann Endert moved to Canada in 1960. He worked a very memorable career in the forest industry as a timber cruiser, later moving into land evaluation for the government. In the early 1970’s Bill and Ann adopted two children. They loved raising their family. Bill also wrote two books later in his life.
William leaves behind his daughter Erica (Christian) Tidder and son Walter (Tammy) Endert, grandchildren Savannah, Tristan, and Warner, and great -grandchild Jack with beautiful memories. At Bill's request there will be no funeral service.
Bill Endert was loved throughout his community. The ocean was his passion, windsurfing when he was younger and swimming and kayaking well into his eighties. He loved to travel and had friends all over the world. He will always be in our hearts.
