William Leonard Sweet (a.k.a Bill, Doctor, The Boar), in his 71st year, of Belleville, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, December 29, 2021. Beloved husband of 47 years to Patricia Sweet (nee Wright). Bill will be lovingly remembered by his daughters Autumn Sweet and her husband Robert Weber, Honey Sweet, and Shawnecie Sweet-Young, and her husband James Young. Bill was the dear Papa to Rylee and Ava Sweet-Clark, Avery and Landon Sweet-Young, and Paige and Coen Weber. Bill will be missed by his sisters-in-law, Karen Stickle and her husband Barry, Laurie-Ann Hay, and her husband Kevin. He will be remembered by his older sisters, Lenna Donovan and her husband Rick, and Jacquie Clarke, and her husband Ted. He will be missed by his many nieces and nephews. Bill will also be fondly remembered by Josh Clark and his family. Bill had many interests including bow hunting, reading, and archery. Bill had a natural talent and love for visual arts. He created many beautiful pieces using acrylic and oil paints as well as ink sketches. His work will be lovingly displayed for years to come in the homes of his family and friends. He particularly enjoyed spending time with his family at the cottage. He loved to sit on the deck, in the early morning light with his coffee. There, he would watch the birds and feed his little chipmunk buddies from his hand. Bill will be missed by all who knew him and we all are just a little better for having had him in our lives. The impact he had on those he loved was, and we quote, “unbelievable”.
Due to capacity limitations with the current Covid guidelines, the Memorial Service will be private.
As a lover of wildlife, Bill would have appreciated a donation to the Sandy Pines Wildlife Center in his memory. Donations can be made through CanadaHelps.org
