Obituary For Myron "Bill" William Fenton

Age 85, Bedford NS. Bill was the son of the late Myron and Ena (Custance) Fenton. He was a proud graduate of Rothesay Collegiate school where he made many lifelong friends. He and his loving wife Patricia (Curry) celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in April 2022. For the first 25 years of their marriage, they resided and raised their family in Fredericton, NB, where he practiced law after graduating from the University of New Brunswick School of Law. Their desire to be closer to family brought them back to his hometown of Bedford in 1987. His sense of community landed him on the Board of the Metropolitan Authority, which at the time oversaw both municipal transit and waste resources. He later became the Chairman where he served until the amalgamation of HRM. His “second” retirement left him plenty of time to enjoy his grandchildren, Daniel (Boudreau), Will and Lauren (Fenton). In addition to his wife and grandchildren, Bill is survived by his daughter, Mary Beth (Normand Dube), and his son Billy (Jo-Ann Clark). He was predeceased by his sister Mary and infant granddaughter. Donations in his memory may be made to the Nova Scotia Nature Trust or Cobequid Health Centre Foundation.

    I greatly enjoyed our conversations and Bills particular insights on politics, golf and the old days in Bedford. He was never shy expressing unvarnished opinions. We will miss that.

    So sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I greatly enjoyed talking with Bill and drinking his rum. We often sat and chatted about life, land, development, old Bedford, deals, and antics over the years (most best left for another day!). Bill was a character for sure, tight with a penny, but a sharp mind, a kind heart, and a great love for family. Rest easy my friend...
