Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • Our deepest sythpathies go out to Linda and Bill's family. Bill was my manager at the UOM, but mostly he was a mentor and friend with unlimited skills and patience. Bill was well respected by all who knew him. You will be missed, and thanks for all that you were. Rene & Jo-Anne Pambrun - Posted by: Rene & Jo-Anne Pambrun (Friends) on: Feb 27, 2017

  • Sadly I read of Bill's passing today, our condolences to his family. We knew Bill in earlier years. Story: Bill, a skilled builder, after the Pan Am Games won a bid to dismantle and haul away good 3/4" plywood lumber, then he worried what to do with it all. He managed though with help to store and build a garage in town and most of the lake cottage. A good friend to us. Betty & Keith Lewis - Posted by: Betty and Keith Lewis (friends) on: Feb 26, 2017
