  1. Willis (Bill) O'Leary :

    My sympathy to the Blyth family on Bill’s passing.
    I worked with Bill on the formation of the South West Athletic Association and met him informally on many occasions over the years. I always enjoyed discussing hockey and the stock market with him. He often spoke of his remarkable family of whom he was justifiably proud. I will remember him fondly.
