OBITUARY: William Alfred (Bill) HADDEN


William Alfred (Bill) HADDEN


On April 15, 2024, William Alfred (Bill) Hadden joined his wife (Mary Ellen) in heaven at the age of 91.

Bill was born in Quebec City in 1932 and is pre- deceased by his parents Lauretta May DeBoo and William John Hadden. Quebec City was Bill’s home for 91 years.

He was an accomplished mechanic and fleet management superintendent, having served 38 years for Alex Coulombe Ltd (Pepsi). Bill was active with the company’s retirement association, providing humour and singing songs on the bus to different events. He was also proud to serve on the Quebec fleet safety board (SST Québec) promoting road safety. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was greatly appreciated by many for his wisdom and always ready to give a hand to anyone when needed. He could repair, fix or build anything that needed to be done. Bill loved the outdoors: snowmobiling, sailing on Miss Behave, motorcycling and fishing. He also enjoyed playing dominoes, and in his later years, participating in a bowling league.

Bill was predeceased by his wife Mary Ellen Berryman of Donnacona and will be greatly missed by his five children, Deborah (David Rourke), Jeff (Michele Whalen), Dan (Anna Clairmont), Tina (Robert Pouliot), and Barbara (Ghislain Tessier); his seven grandchildren, Melissa, Sarah, Cynthia, Steven, Amanda, Samantha and Eric; and his seven great-grandchildren, Marie-Ellen, William, Laura, Savannah, Joey, Anika and Emir.

Bill took great joy to share laughs, dance the jitterbug with his sister Joan, joke and tell stories with family and friends. Bill is predeceased by his sisters Vera (Howard Hicks) and Joan (Jules Fiset), and his brother John, known as Jack (Pierrette Plourde).

We want to thank the personnel of Saint Brigid’s Home for their great care.

The immediate family will hold a private celebration of life at a date to be determined.

Bill will be laid to rest with his late wife Mary Ellen at Mount Hermon Cemetery in Quebec City.
