  • I met Billy when he first came to Thompson in 1959. I became friends with his sister Pat during that time. Billy was a funny, pesky little brother and made me think of the Alfred E Newman in MAD...I spoke with him a couple of months ago while updating the high school alumni. He was so upbeat and friendly. My condolences to Pat at this sad time. - Posted by: Betty Blair Snuggs (friend) on: Aug 12, 2012

I hope he will be laid to rest with thoughtful caring and kindness. - Posted by: Carole Jones (nee Dubery) (Cousin) on: Aug 12, 2012

  • Bill was always a funny guy, and liked to fool around. His warm sense of humour and his happy-go-lucky attitude, let alone his skills, or lack thereof sometimes, on the basketball court...always made for a fun time. I wish peace for all his family and healing for their hearts...May his spirit live on and his family be blessed for having him in their lives...Rest in Peace. Bill.. - Posted by: Reta Derkson (former school classmate) on: Aug 11, 2012
