William "Bill" Canning

December 1, 1963 ~ June 13, 2019 (age 55)


William (Bill) Canning of Norfolk , formerly of Needham and Franklin, passed away on June 13, 2019 at 55 years old. He was the beloved husband of Gina (Varitimidis) Canning for 22 years and the proud father of Alexa and Nicholas. Bill was born on December 1, 1963 to Betty (Farr) Canning of Needham and the late Richard (Dick) Canning.

Above all, he loved his family and always put them first.  He lived his life to the fullest. Bill was the proud owner of XL Painting and Remodeling Inc. for over 25 years. He was a dedicated businessman, but in his free time he enjoyed golfing, fishing, and spending time with his wife and kids. His magnetic personality and sense of humor never failed to bring a smile to friends and families faces’.  Bill never missed any of his kid’s soccer, baseball, or basketball games and prided himself as their #1 fan. He never missed an opportunity to do something adventurous (and often a little wild) with Alexa.  As the coach of Niko’s baseball team, he was admired and respected. He touched the hearts of all who knew him.
