Condolences & Memories (8 entries)

  • I met Bill at Orion Chevrolet, when his friends daughter came by to purchase a car. He brought his family to support her. Bill was one of the most incredible human beings. Marilyn and Bill immediately took me in as family. Angie and I became very close. I still think of them all to this day, and, much more frequently than you could imagine. Bill and I went to California together together, and had a tremendous time together. Bill was expanding his Amway company, and from the moment we arrived, until the time we met, I admired everything about him, and his friends. Marilyn would always make an excuse about why I HAD to come over for dinner. She made the best lasagna in the world, just for me. Never forget you guys. Never forget Angie. Amazing spirit and energy, engraved in her DNA, from Bill and Marilyn. My email, is always available in case the family needs anything. RIP, Bill, love you all, and I am close by if anyone needs anything. Love, Einar Johanson - Posted by: Einar Johanson (California friend from Arborg Manitoba ) on: Apr 10, 2022

  • "Herbert" was on the crew of the first station that I was assigned to. He was hero of mine as a young fire fighter. He was usually the guy who found the people in the house and got them out. Man saved lives. - Posted by: Scott Miner (Collegue) on: Jun 08, 2014

  • I am Judy Anscomb's 2nd son and I remember meeting Bill Taylor (and family) for the first time when my family moved back to Winnipeg in August of 1978. He was always a tremendous support to our family and I will never forget him. My deepest condolences to his family and friends alike. - Posted by: Corey Mugford (Family Friend) on: May 06, 2014

  • There are no words to describe the heartbreak one feels at the loss of a lifelong friend. We were friends as teenagers, spending time in Osborne Village long before it became trendy. Hours at the Margaret Rose Tea Room, and frequent trips to Juniors on Main street. Bill was a true friend, one who never judged and was always supportive. The past few months of Bill's life we shared many stories of his life in Winnipeg and California and how he was battling his Cancer. He did not want to give up. I'm sorry I didn't get there to say a face to face goodbye to Bill as I promised I would but I promise I will be there for Marilyn. My condolences to Marilyn, Laurel, Ken and all family members of Bill's friends. It is not often that a friend remains a friend for more than 55 years and I have been truly blessed with that friendship. I will miss you Bill. Your friend forever. Until we meet again. - Posted by: Judy Anscomb (Friend) on: May 05, 2014

  • I remember Bill and his sister Laurel from the Osborne Village area before it was "trendy", and from Churchill High School. Thought of them when we were putting together a private dinner for a few students back in 2005, but had no way to get in touch. My condolences on your loss. - Posted by: Linda Strange (nee Kerr) (fellow student) on: May 04, 2014

  • Sorry to hear of Bill's Passing, Marilyn. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Gail - Posted by: Gail Kotowich (worked at MTS/knew Marilyn thru' union) on: May 03, 2014

  • I met Marilyn and Bill in 1988. They remained good friends. They loved their grandchildren very much and were always hospitable and kind. Bill was a very hard working provider for his family and chose to serve in the U. S. Marines as a Canadian. I think that shows excellent character. - Posted by: Shelley Mitchell (friend) on: May 03, 2014
