They had 3 children: William, Ann (Dolishny)  and  Peter.  William grew up on a farm near Oshawa Ontario where he learned the value and discipline of hard work at a young age. He became an employee of the Ford Motor Company (Oakville Plant) on January 4, 1954. He worked in a number of departments with a perfect job attendance record. He never missed a single day’s work in 45 years which was a testament to his great stamina and company loyalty.

He lived a long and healthy life, only succumbing to dementia at the age of 91 years.
