    My condolences to the family of Bill. We spent many summer holidays in Collingwood, Ontario together in our early teens.
    Bill and I had a great relationship when he was a rep. for Shell Canada in the London, Ontario area. We would spend many hours on the phone discussing family heritage and local Collingwood news.

  30. John Ackermans :

    Bill was a wonderful human being who touched everyone he met with his decency and concern for others. I dealt with him on a community committee and his quick riposte and gentle encouragement always was a positive to the evening. Clearly a “good man” in every sense of the words.

    After being away for 10 days, I have just returned to find out the sad news of Bill’s passing. June I am so sorry.

  36. I am very saddened to hear of Bill’s death. We haven’t seen each other for many years but stayed in touch at Christmas. Bill provided consulting support many years ago when I worked for Shell Canada. We stayed in touch long after our professional interface had ended. He was such a gentleman, so professional, so helpful. He was a kind person that left a huge footprint in life without all of the fluff that some people need. I am very fortunate to have known such a wonderful man. He will be missed but never forgotten.
    Dave Brown, Kingston, Ontario

  37. Annette Pedersen :

    I am so sad to hear of Bill’s passing. He was a remarkable man, and one who strived to improve the lives of people he touched. I was his dental assistant for many years, and I would always book extra time for him so we could catch up on our stories. He found out that my son was interested in railroads, which was a passion of Bill’s as well. He would take my son on occasion to model railroad clubs, SAIT or to Heritage Park for Railway Days. As I was a single mother, I cannot begin to express how much this meant to me to have an upstanding man like Bill, spend time with my son. He will definitely be missed. I am truly sorry for your loss.

  38. Trish Exton-Parder :

    My deepest sympathies to all of you. Bill was a wonderful man full of energy and love. He will be missed by many – a great friend of dad’s.
    Trish Exton-Parder

  39. Brenda Selanders :

    I was so sorry to learn of Bill’s passing. I feel that it was a real privilege to have met Bill a number of years ago, and I will always value his positive outlook. He was a wonderful man. My sincerest condolences to his family members.

  40. Xenia Stanford :

    It is with sadness that I learned of Bill’s passing only today when I went to the Alberta Family Histories Society website. Since moving to Kelowna, I have not attended the monthly meetings where I am sure his passing saddened every member. Bill was one of the first people to welcome me to the Society in the 1980s and was an outstanding member throughout the years. We worked on a few small projects together but Bill’s contribution to the Society was anything but small. He left a large footprint that will not soon be forgotten. My condolences to his family and close friends.
