William Herbert Wiens
Let the memory of William be with us forever

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, William Wiens (Bill or Billy).  We encourage you to share your memories with Bill's friends and family.

Billy loved to laugh and never tired of learning.  He lived life his way and often made a bold impression on the lives he touched.  Many four-legged friends owe their happy lives to this man.  His heart for their well-being will always be remembered.  In honour of his memory, donations may be made to Urban Wildlife Care (, contact: Cara Contardi). 

A celebration of his life was held in Cambridge on Saturday, March 29, 2014. 

Feel free to also email his family at

"Thinking of you today on your birthday."

"Violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red - the colours of the rainbow that Billy taught me – he used to tell me all the things he learned from Mr. White in grade eight science class.  He never stopped trying to tell me things he thought I should know, although over the years they became more complicated, and we didn’t always or even often agree. But the love between us was always there and I appreciated his support and good counsel – and quick, quirky wit. And the gentleness he sometimes tried to hide. We could count on Billy to bring us down to earth in the family email round robins on some subject we thought was serious until then. He had many difficulties to bear but never lost the ability to look on the funny or bright side. I’m imagining what pithy comment he might put in this tribute and can’t help smiling. I’ll always be watching for rainbows and thinking of my big brother Billy - and his smile. With love, Lana"
