  2. This is very late but I just found this. My apologies,
    I send along my sympathies to you, Wendy, and your family for the loss of your dad. I remember meeting him one holiday many years ago when I was welcomed to your home. He was a powerful force for sure.

  3. I met Bill and Mary only once in the fall of 1966 while dating their daughter Arlene who was attending U of A. They seemed a robust couple and were kind to me. In later times I heard respectful words about Bill from oil industry participants. I wish I had learned more from him about his RCAF experiences. It would be nice to hear from Arlene. My email is:
