Judy and family. We are very sorry to hear of the passing of Bill. Knew him from way back and his father. Did not have much interaction with him and you but he was always pleasant with a mile on hid face and a warm hello and conversation. We will miss him at church and events. God bless you and will keep you in our prayers.

Judy, my sincere condolences to you and your family. I was very sad to hear about Bill’s passing. Bill hired me after graduating from University. He was a great, always very supportive, he encouraged me and helped me grow. He was a great coach and a true mentor.
I always found Bill to be a very kind and caring man. When we connected later in our careers it was all about family. He wanted to know how I and my family were doing. He would always talk about his family and how proud he was of all his kids. He was a special man and will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear about Bill's passing. I worked at Trebley Brokerage with Paul Currie. Bill was such a kind and gentle soul. He was a true gentleman. He will be so missed by all but heaven has taken him home where he must be rejoicing at this very minute.
