    I was very sad to hear of Bill’s passing. I got to know Bill through our mutual friend and neighbour at Holly Park, Marnie Staub. I had the pleasure of their company on a number of special occasions. Bill was always warm, cheerful and had a great sense of humour. My thoughts are with Bill’s family and Marnie and her family at this sad time. Bill, you will be fondly remembered!

    Mike
