Muirhead, William “Bill” Hugh Fraser It is with profound sadness that we, the family of Bill Muirhead, 82, of New Glasgow, announce his passing at the Aberdeen Hospital, Palliative Care Unit on Friday, September 4, 2020. He was the only son of John and Isabel (MacLean) Muirhead. Husband to his wife Vera (Shelleby) Muirhead for 60 years. Father to daughter Barbara (Muirhead) Dan Young of Abercrombie and son Bill and Robin of New Glasgow. He was predeceased by his parents and in laws. Bill is survived by sister in law Mary MacDonald, Antigonish, Jackie Shelleby, Mississauga Ontario, several nieces and nephews and cousins. Bill was a long-distance trucker over his working life. He started driving truck for Cooks transfer, New Glasgow Express Ltd, Germaine and Williams trucking, W.E. Tanner trucking, Brookville, Midland, Chet’s transfer and King Freight. Bill ran his own business Bill Muirhead Trucking. Bill was a proud member of the New Glasgow Lions Club and served as King Lion, and a former member of the RCAF 110 Wing, Stellarton. Bill was a past Director of the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association (APTA). Bill was strong in spirit and you always knew where you stood with him. His enthusiasm for life and love of trucking took him from coast to coast in Canada and the USA. Life on the road kept life interesting." We wish to express our gratitude for the army of health care workers that cared for him. Marla MacDonald NP, Westville Clinic, VON, Home Care, VON, VON C.C.
