After the war, he travelled with his mom, on the Queen Mary, to Halifax and then by rail to Winnipeg. For the first few years, they lived on the Kohut family farm near Emerson, until a home on Airlie's Street was available. Bill lived there with his mother and sisters until he married in 1968. Bill and Corrine built a home in West St. Paul 45 years ago, raised their family and had a great life until his passing. Bill was a hard worker, at 22 he joined the Ironworker's Union 728 and the last 35 years he was a welder with the Boil Makers Local 555 (Triple Nickel). When he was younger Bill loved to fish, hunt and snowmobile with the guys. For the last 18 years, winters were spent in Yuma, Arizona with many wonderful, dear people. Friends and family always had lots of great times and memories over the last 50 years. As per Bill's wishes no funeral will be held.
