It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of William Paton in his 74th year on March 25, 2020 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Hamilton. Beloved son of the late Robert & Joyce Paton. Loving brother of Barbara Paton, Margaret Paton, Christine Knighton, and Elizabeth Crowley (Terry). Dear Uncle of Bob Walker, Jon Walker, Bill Walker, Ben Whitfield, Kate Whitfield, Lila Knighton, Catherine Crowley and the late Rachel Sanders.

Bill was the property manager for Brookfield Place in Calgary until health concerns persuaded him to take early retirement. He moved to Crowsnest Pass, Alberta to be closer to nature. Bill spent many years hiking, skiing and catching fish which he would then carefully release. He was active in the Crowsnest Conservation Society and passionate about protecting the pristine environment around him, especially the creeks. Bill’s love of nature was infectious and influenced many friends and family members. He had an amazing talent for photography and captured images of wildlife from all around the world.

Bill had a gentle soul but that didn’t stop him from making very astute observations about many of the events taking place in the world today. He was an independent thinker. You could always count on Bill to give a reasoned response to any question. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

At Bill’s request, cremation has taken place. In lieu of flowers, donations to Nature Conservancy of Canada or Crowsnest Conservation Society would be appreciated. On-line condolences can be made at

We are so shocked & saddened to hear this news.
We had a great relationship with Bill. We camped, hiked, fished and skied in the mountains with him for many years. Bill was around so much and part of our lives that our kids referred to him as Uncle Bill. Even after he moved to the Crowsnest Pass, we continued to stop by to spend the night to check up on him and life in general. We had so many wonderful memories hanging out with Bill. Memories to cherish & continue to talk about!

With much Love, we're really gonna miss Bill.

Love Brian, Lisa Jordan & Cody

With much Love, we're really going to miss Bill.

We will Deeply Sincerely miss him!.

Bill was always an interesting person to talk to and I think fondly of our conversations in the vehicle as we'd head to Castle Mountain ski hill. Good guy and he is missed.
