    Dear Family,

    I am so sorry to hear about Bill’s passing. We went to Salisbury together, he was a great basketball player, and a fun guy to be around.
    He loved to tease all the girls for sure.

    You are in my thoughts during this very sad time

    Marlene & family – So very sorry to hear of your loss. Bill was a true gentleman – I will remember how friendly he always was on ours drives home from babysitting when you both would attend the Oilers games. Hopefully in time, your sweet memories will fill your hearts more often than the tears…thinking of all of you…

    Marlene and Family; Hard to believe Bill has passed on. Our sincere condolences. While its only a few short years that we have come to know Bill, we always looked forward to our rendezvous, which meant for fun and laughter, not to mention one of Bill’s new jokes. We admired him for who he was and an unconditional friend. Our thoughts are with you.
