  2. I have known Bill since high school in Innisfail, then Red Deer College, where he was an athlete but also always up for fun. Over the years in Red Deer and then Calgary, we kept in touch and had a lot of memorable times. Sad to see him go. Very sorry to miss the service but I am out of the country.
