Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Pat, Suszanne and I extend to you our sincere condolences in your loss of Bill. We are saddened in the loss of a friend and political ally. We always had a good conversation most often about the Blue Jays, the Jets, or about politics in general. When we met for coffee at Studlers’ or at LJ’s he could be relied upon to good naturedly tease the people working there. I sat with Bill on a few different boards and got to know him as a man with a broad range of knowledge that showed in the different perspectives he brought to the table for discussion. We shall miss him! Our best to you,Pat and wishing for you a peace as you deal with this new reality. Gavin Jones P.S. I was honoured to have been asked by Bill to be a pallbearer at your Mom’s funeral. G. - Posted by: Gavin Jones (Friend) on: Feb 04, 2023
