Kingston’s first mayor dies tribute to the former mayor on social media. “A man of great dignity and decency who never forgot that it was a privilege to serve in public office, he will be missed by all who knew him,” Cr Gledhill said. “Personally, I will miss our regular chats as I often sought Bill’s wise counsel on matters of council, but above all, I simply enjoyed his company. Rest In Peace Bill.” The funeral will be held at St John Vianney’s Catholic Church, East Parkdale on Wednesday 6 November, 12pm
