We were so very sorry to hear of Bill's sudden passing. He was such a joy to be around. He will be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family. Your friends from Kansas, The Cardwell family.

We are so very sorry to hear of the sudden passing of Bill. He was our neighbour at Miller Family Camp for over a decade, We really enjoyed his visits, sense of humor and approach to life. I often thought I'd love to model my retirement years after Bill. We were so fortunate to see him, riding his bike past, going fishing, sitting on his deck relaxing, enjoying his days with Janet . We last spoke to Bill a few weeks ago, when he stopped over to enquire how Rachel was feeling after her recent surgery and treatment. Such a wonderful man . He will be missed by all his friends at the lake. Please accept our sincere condolences. Pete Rachel and Mackenzie Miller.

So sorry to hear about Bill, we enjoyed chatting with him at our trailer at Miller lake. He was a kind and wonderful man. He will be greatly missed. Rachel Miller Site 20

Dear family so very sorry to read about your Dads passing

— Bill &judy gerber, July 29, 2020

Oh my goodness. What to say about Mulch! In my mind, he is ageless. We had so much fun in my 5 yrs at MFDHS. He roped me into the yearly science fair but I had no idea it would be so much fun. This is when I got to know Bill and his sense of humour. He was generous with his time helping me negotiate my teaching role and opening his home to me and to Peter. We had so much fun and I learned a lot from him. I smile every time I think of him. To his family, I am so sorry for your great loss. There is so much to miss, but I suspect you each have a part of him hard-wired into you and will carry him with you in your smiles and laughter.

To the Mulchinock family. Very sorry for your loss. One of my favorite teachers. My condolences to all of you.

— Bart Penwarden, July 22, 2020

My condolences to his family. Bill was a wonderful science teacher who taught with a passion for his subject matter and respect from his students. He certainly made a lasting impression on me, a high school science teacher myself. Ron Francis, MFDHS (1985-1990)

— Ron Francis, July 21, 2020

Bill Mulchinock, or as I called him..."SMILEY" was one hell of a good man. Good father, grandfather and teacher! My daughter Chantel was blessed to have him as a Grandpa! You will be missed "Smiley". Love You. R.I.P

— Cynthia, July 20, 2020

My sympathy so Janet and Bill's family. His smile will be missed in Holiday Condo Park.

— Laura Crew, July 20, 2020

Rob, Tracy and family. Your father was such a great guy. The picture you picked just captured his spirit completely. Mr. Mulchinock had such a presence and made learning Science a class to look forward to, because you never knew what he had up his sleeve. So many memories to smile about; Winter Carnival, Football, Soccer of course science. "Mr. Mulchinock" will be missed.

— Cheryl (Bye) Murphy, July 20, 2020

Janet, Tracy, Ron, our sincere condolences to you on the sudden passing of Bill. He was our friend for many year at Holiday Condo in Florida. He was always very active in the park. Loved to stop by where he and Janet would be sitting and have a visit. He will be missed by many especially the Canadian snowbirds. May he RIP. George, Dianne Miller and family.

— Dianne & George Miller, July 20, 2020

As a brand new teacher and brand new to the community, Bill (and his lovely wife, Betty), not only welcomed me to MFDHS but also into their home. Bill was a mentor and colleague who took the time to guide me through the tough, early days of learning how to be a teacher. I will always ge greatful for his patient and wise advice. Bill was a well loved teacher and a dear friend. My heartfelt condolences to his family.

— Kathie McCracken, July 20, 2020

Still remember first day of grade 9; Bill was my home room teacher. I was sitting there in his class with two other students well before 8:30. Bill walks in looks around and with that dry sense of humour he had told us all to keep the noise down! Lots of great memories of Bill as my teacher particularly during my grade 9 year and working on the big musical "A Walk Through Broadway" with him. He was a great guy. My deepest condolences to his family. Paul Barnard (MFDHS 1980 - 1985)

— Paul Barnard, July 20, 2020

I am sorry to hear of Bill's passing. Please accept my condolences. I will always look warmly upon the time I had with "Mulch". He was a funny, bright, straight shooting and caring presence. I have many good memories of him and I will never forget how he helped my family in a time of need. It is my hope that your own good memories of him will carry you through your loss. I will always remember him in the same way, with him smiling from ear to ear and when I do, it makes me smile too.

Dear Tracy, Rob and Families, Your Dad was a wonderful person and fabulous teacher. He earned everyone’s respect. I personally got to know both Mom and Dad a little better as I babysat you when you were younger. You had a wonderful set of parents. You will miss your dad dearly.

— Rosalie Eidt (Gass), July 19, 2020

Dear Rob and Tracy ...I am so saddened to hear about Bill. He was a good man and he loved his family so much. He was very proud of you both. We became close when he moved to Chatham and was at my mom’s side for several years. He stayed with her long after we thought he would because that was the kind of man he was. My husband Mark and I loved Bill, and we had many fun times together and some not so fun times due to mom’s declining health, but through it all we respected him so much. And we missed him when he left, but always wished him well. I am very sorry for your loss.

— Marie Russell, July 19, 2020

Tracy and Rob: I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I am thinking of you at this sad time.

— Bev, July 19, 2020

This makes me so sad. He was my teacher too, and home room teacher in Grade 10. The football coach back then. He was well liked by all.

— Judy Barrette-Flint, July 19, 2020

Tracy & Rob, I'm very sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. He was a great father, teacher and neighbour. He will be missed but not forgotten. Love and best wishes to you both. Scott

— Scott Moody, July 19, 2020

My deepest sympathy to the family, he was a great teacher and fabulous guy

— Karen Switzer, July 19, 2020

So sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. He was a favourite teacher of mine. I loved his Biology class and I think that led me to my career in Nursing.

— Janice Free, July 19, 2020
