Ennis, William “Bill” E., age 89 of Dunedin, FL., passed June 20, 2017 while under Hospice Care.

A WWII Veteran and former homebuilder from Danvers Massachusetts, Bill and family moved to Dunedin in 1957. He was an enduring resident in the Dunedin Isles brick road neighborhood.

He’s joined his wife Jacqueline, predeceased, on what would have been their 64th wedding anniversary. Throughout the mid 1970’s and 1980’s, he was an active member of his Dunedin community, performing various volunteer work. At the Dunedin Marina, he restored non-seaworthy sailing pram vessels that were put back into commission for the children’s sailing program and Windlasses sailing group.

Bill performed various carpentry and electrical repairs at the historic 1888 Andrews Memorial Chapel near Hammock Park, lending his time to open the church for events, which was a popular wedding venue. Additionally, he volunteered at the Dunedin Historical Museum.

He served several years as President and Vice President of the Dunedin Optimist Club. During his tenure, he provided materials to build a local motor cross bicycle track, and reconfigured an old camper to become a concession stand nicknamed “Smoky Stover” which raised funds during the Youth Motor Cross competitions.

For several years, Bill enlisted the entire adult Ennis family to sell beer from two truck locations at the Dunedin Highland Games. He also recruited two oldest grandchildren to sell raffle tickets, all to raise funds for the City Pipe Band, the Middle & High School Highlander bands.

Surviving local family members include: sister-in-law, Joan Murray; children, Linda Ennis Roy, Kim Ennis Rice and Jamie Ennis; grandchildren, Heather James, Daniel & Brian Roy, William “Bill” Ennis, Elise Ennis Ortiz, Zachary Ennis and six great-grandchildren.

In honor of Bill’s life, memorial donations may be made to the Suncoast Hospice Foundation at www.t­hehos­pice.­org/d­onate.
