In 1964 my grandparents bought a farm in Dutton and raised their family there. My Grandmother died suddenly from a heart attack over 20 years ago, and my Grandfather was left to run the farm by himself. My Grandfather grew to have a love for all things Dutton – Mancaris, Laramys, Co-Trac and all the friends that he visited/had coffee with there. After his move to Ashwood Manor (retirement home), he visited Dutton often, always gathering a crowd of the locals who missed his jokes and stories. The Armstrong family have a loyalty to their hometown, a very caring community. Bill was a farmer, mechanic and drainage tiler. His passion was fixing things, figuring out how to get an engine working. In retirement, gas engines became his biggest hobby. He travelled to Kansas, Indiana, Quebec, and Iowa, always on the hunt for engines and parts. Being such a kid at heart, he loved being a Grandpa. He loved riding in four seater airplanes. He liked Pelee Island. He was known for his red trucks and blue tractors. Stroke and dementia robbed him of his ability to live his last years in the style he was accustomed to.
