William Ducey, 40, of Oshawa, passed away Sunday, May 2, 2021, due to his long tireless battle with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. William was born October 18, 1980, at Scarborough Centennial Hospital, the son of William and Julia (Farago) Ducey and brother to Jason Ducey, Matthew Ducey, Christina Ducey, and Lauren (Davey) Ducey. He attended Saugeen District Highschool in Port Elgin. He furthered his education at Acadia University in Nova Scotia, majoring in Sociology and Biology.
William, an avid music lover, spent his early years mastering the guitar and piano allowing him to write and create beautiful music. His free spirit and cunning sense of humor was contagious to everyone around him. William spent every day that he was physically able, going on adventures, traveling, playing music, and building long-lasting relationships. He has many amazing people who have shown him so much love over the years. Regardless of his situation and what his illness threw his way, he always maintained a positive and happy outlook on life. Truly a hero in his own right to many of us who love him.
A special thank you to all the people who helped him manage his illness, like all the incredible staff at Hillsdale Estates who took the time and patience to ensure William was in a happy and safe place.
