Condolences & Memories (10 entries)

  • Shelley, Rob and Noelle very sorry to hear Bill had passed away. I have a lot of memories from our time on the East Kildonan Police and gatherings after work. Mary and myself also have treasured memories of visiting your parents on File Crescent. in Selkirk. I had also attended Selkirk a couple of times in the last two years with John Maartense picking your Dad up and going for lunch to Roxies in Selkirk. We had plans to attend your Dad's celebration of life today but I have recently had surgery and a side effect has shown up in the last several days which will prevent me from coming. Our thoughts are with you and your family. Sorry we can't make it today. - Posted by: Sam & Mary Sewell (coworker and friend) on: Jan 15, 2020

  • Dear Shelley, Robbie and Noelle I will always remember Uncle Bill as a fellow with a fiesty spirit and a terrific sense of humor. He definitely had an opinion about various things, and I can picture the look on his face when he felt strongly about something. Many years ago, out of the blue, I received a Christmas card from him. It was just the nicest surprise. I feel really gratified about seeing him during the summer of 2018, and especially that he was able to attend Mom's celebration of life at Elmwood Cemetery. I know he loved his pets, and having coffee with his buddies in later years. To all of you, Shelley, Robbie, Noelle, and your families, from my family in Perth, Australia, we send you our thoughts and condolences on the occasion of Uncle Bill's passing. He was definitely one in a million! Sincerely, Pietro and Mary Andreotta Ty, Emily, Archer and Leo Masters - Posted by: Mary Andreotta (Niece) on: Jan 10, 2020

  • My condolences to Bill's family. I have so many memories of Bill in the years we were neighbors, we bonded over many conversations about yard work, our pets, politics, lack of general common sense (unlike ourselves) lol. He had become a part of my family! When I moved away we tried to keep in touch, but time got away from us. I still missed our chats to this day! He was one of a kind💕 - Posted by: Diane Gratton (Steinke) (1 Fial Crescent neighbor ) on: Jan 07, 2020

  • Some of my happiest and most memorable years were spent with Bill as partners in a police cruiser car. We shared both the good and the bad that comes with the job. He was very highly valued as both my co-worker and friend. My most sincere condolences to his family. - Posted by: Bob Aplin (Friend and former co-worker) on: Dec 24, 2019

  • Our Sincerest sympathy to Shelley, Robbie and Noelle. Bill was a close friend starting back in the early days in Morse Place as ten year olds to best buds through the teens, right to ushering at our wedding. Always kept in touch, even if it was only a phone call. Bill will be missed by his many “armchair athlete “ pals. Best ever bricklayer. RIP friend. - Posted by: Doug and Jean Ingram (Friend) on: Dec 18, 2019

  • Noelle, Robbie & Shelly Very sorry to hear about your loss. I just saw Bill this summer at Tudor house and spent sometime sharing a few memories of the neighborhood with him. Our thoughts & prayers are with you during this time. Kandi, Jim & Juelle West - Posted by: Kandi George (Friend/Neighbor) on: Dec 17, 2019

  • Morse Place lost another legend. A man of many talents. Rest in peace. - Posted by: Gord Johnson (Friend) on: Dec 16, 2019

  • Bill was a great friend and steward of Fial Cres. He did all the brick work for my new home. I could set my watch by the time Bill went for his first morning coffee! My deepest sympathy to Bill’s family. Noel babysat my son Justin a few times. - Posted by: Jim Barbour (Friend and neighbour) on: Dec 16, 2019

  • I will miss Uncle Bill. He was my only uncle and I am so grateful for my connection to the Anderson side of the family. He had an amazing sense of humour, he loved his pets and he had the best facial expressions. He had a great yodel I have no idea where he got that from. So sad to see you go, Uncle Bill. I know Mom was there to greet you! I know they are all watching over us and covering their eyes hoping we will all behave as we were taught when we were growing up. End of an era for our generation. Will miss you lots, Uncle Bill! - Posted by: Cathy Plotnick (NIECE ) on: Dec 14, 2019

  • I was wondering where Bill has been whenever we go to the Selkirk Dairy Queen. Haven’t seen him in quite a while. I remember him when he worked with Eldon in the police force. Such a nice man. - Posted by: Linda Gillis (friend) on: Dec 14, 2019
