Condolences to the family of William Thomas Downe


William Thomas

September 29, 1943 – October 26, 2022

We lost our father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and son. William Thomas Downe, 79, unexpectedly passed away the morning of October 26, in his home. He was a man who saw the best in everyone and enjoyed his days most when they were spent with his kids or grandkids. He is survived by his two children Tina Cassidy (Cliff) and Alan Downe (Jennifer); grandchildren Aidan, Liam, Kaitlyn, Haley, Addison, and Alyssa; his mother Anne Downe; sister Carol Stalker; and brother Dave Downe (Annette). He spent his early fatherhood years as a volunteer in the town of Three Hills, involved in hockey and baseball, and was an active member of the Three Hills Kinsmen. His last few years were spent following the softball and volleyball adventures of his granddaughters, Haley, Addi, and Alyssa, via social media. Also, in recent years he loved attending basketball games to cheer on Aidan and Kaitlyn, and volleyball games to cheer on Liam. He loved explaining the details of their successes and games; and never tired of retelling the game! He also enjoyed almost daily conversations with his sister, Carol, and sharing about the happenings out in the country. Those days were filled with happiness and wonderful memories! He will forever be missed but is in a better place walking the streets of heaven, pain-free! Photos, memories and condolences may be shared with William’s family through
