OLIVER, William Thomas (Bill) We wish to advise the sad passing of Bill on Friday 19th February 2021, aged 88 years. Dearly loved brother of Marian Doherty. Cherished uncle of Maree, John, Paul, and the late Anna and great-uncle of Emma, Katie, Fianna, and Patrick. Respected friend of Stuart Collie, Donald Fleck, Maureen Anderson, and Liam Howley. R.I.P Requiem Mass will be celebrated in St Thomas Aquinas Church, 84 Great North Road, Winton on Wednesday 24th February at 11.00am. Private interment. Messages to 148 Gimblett Street, Invercargill 9810.


Our deepest condolences to Bill’s family. Many happy years we all spent together as neighbours. He would really have liked the title of Grumpy Old Man however, that smile of his would start crinkling up around his eyes - and his reputation would be blown. What a good bugger he was. Not just at tailing time, but whenever there was a need Bill would always be ready with a helping hand, a decent yarn, and a thoughtful reply. Enjoy the sleep of the just my mate. Your life was a blessing, and your memory will remain a treasure Simon Chris and the feral Ballantyne kids
