Bill was born on February 16, 1931 in Edson, AB. Bill worked for 30 years at Nova Corporation (“Trunk Line”), until his retirement in 1988. Bill’s life was filled with adventures and creativity. His ability to entertain with music and humour was one of his greatest accomplishments. Bill was the ultimate outdoorsman, to the envy of others. BBQ steaks and Sunday pancakes were his specialty, and greatly enjoyed by his family. He was an avid sportsman; coaching, playing, or cheering. To everyone who knew Bill, he was “the Rock”.
