April 01, 1951 - June 25, 2020

William (Bill) Barnard, 69, of Toledo, OH passed away on June 25, 2020. He was born
on April 1, 1951 to William K. Barnard and Elaine J Barnard in Toledo, OH.
A proud graduate of Bowsher High School, where he ran cross country until as he tells
it, he began chasing girls.

On Dec. 29,1995, Bill married the love of his life, Kathleen (Lewis). Not having children
of his own, he became a beloved Dzia Dzia and step-dad to Kathy’s children and was
always ready for an adventure. Whether it was a trip to Gatlinburg, Hocking Hills, or
Sleeping Bear Dunes he was up to living life to the fullest.

Bill retired from Ford in 2015 and has continued to stay active. Kathy and Bill loved day
trips to Metzer’s Marsh, Point Place, and especially loved looking for American Bald
Eagles. When the grandkids would come over or on trips, Bill would teach them about
the stars and the constellations. He loved to be a part of his grandkids adventures,
whether it was cross country, music, playing chess, etc. Maybe one of the best legacies
of Bill Barnard will be he taught all but two of his grandkids how to ride a bike; he was a

Bill is preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Paul.

Adam, Jackson, Sophie, Sadie, and his brother’s four grandchildren, Jasper, Nixon,
