Dear Gail and family,
I was so sorry to hear of Bill's passing and want to send my condolences to all of you. I knew Bill from the Church of the Good Shepherd. He was a warm and friendly guy who was always ready with a welcoming smile and possessed a light spirit and an endearing sense of humor! I know he will be missed! May your precious memories of Bill sustain you in the days ahead and bring you peace! Lots of hugs, Sandy Harty
Uncle Bill is one of my two favourite Uncles. I learned a lot from this man. Every summer for 25+ years we camped at Pierre's Point Campground for several weeks. I am honoured to have been able to spend time with him, and the rest of our extended family. He taught me how to waterski, how to drive a boat, and most importantly, how to launch a boat (in front of judgemental audiences). Uncle Bill helped foster a lifelong interest for me in all things electrical. Circuits, systems, how things work. I never got my electrical engineering degree, but I still thank Uncle Bill for helping me with those studies. I learned that It is ok to take a nap after eating Christmas turkey dinner at Gramma's house (don't wake Uncle Bill). I learned that being patient and having high standards, both personally and professionally are attributes that will help you to be a better person. I learned that if you take care of things, they will last a long time. Family, friends, stuff, everything. Thank you Uncle Bill. It was a honour knowing you and being part of your life. You will be deeply missed. Stuart Serediuk
Dear Shelley, Neil and Family,
Our thoughts and condolences to you during this difficult time. Find solace in the remembrances of fond, fun and loving shared experiences and memories.
I remember Bill as a member of the Church of the Good Shepherd. He was always on duty on a Sunday - shovelling the walks, changing a lightbulb, setting up tables, passing out bulletins, attending to any problems in the kitchen.... He was a quiet, kind man who was loved by everyone.
So sad to hear the news of Bill’s passing. I remember him as such a kind and gentle person. My deepest sympathies go to Gail and all the family. Remember all the good times! Blessings Coline Dirkse
My dad Herman asked Uncle Bill to give me driving lessons as he figured he would be too critical and yhat would make me nervous and prone to mistakes. Loved driving the old Valiant station wagon and Bill always made me so comfortable.
He was also a great help with high school and university mathematics as he used these extensively in his work.
One of the nicest and most upbeat people I ever met. No wonder he will be missed so much by family and friends. My condolences to all.
