  3. Spent many nights and weekends with Twinkie playing ball, golf, volleyball, hockey and many more road touring. So many stories and good times. I will miss him very much. Rest In Peace brother.

  4. Carol and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Bill was a great man….family man, friend and co-worker.
    He would come to work with baking, that twinkle in his eye, telling a story about what a great dinner Carol had cooked, or something the dogs did. Every winter he would show off pictures of his ever increasing Christmas display. He always had a story to tell…family, hockey, his car. I loved to tease him as his wedding grew closer, adjusted several times due to Covid, because he had that great smile of his while talking about wedding plans.
    Bills passing will leave a large hole in the lives of those who were so fortunate to share his life.

  9. Carol and family, I am so sorry for your loss. No words can express how sorry I am about Bill’s passing. He talked about you all the time, your dogs and his garden. The Christmas display by your garden, his Camaro and many more stories. He was so excited about your wedding. He was so happy and loved you very much Carol.

    Bill, we will miss you. I will miss those random days that you bring donuts to our shift. You asked me one time what kind of donut I wanted for tomorrow, and you gave me a raspberry filled donut in a separate bag. Sometimes those savoury bread that I liked. Those little things, you express your love for us. I wished we worked more years. I miss our PM shift, we took care of each other. You were great Bill. Seeing your picture here, made me cry….

  10. My condolences to Carol, Grandma Olga, Garret, Nathan, Ty, and Trevor. Bill was an amazing man and I’m so glad we got to see him recently. Cameron will not forget him coming to watch his hockey game. Your grandsons and I will miss you, Grandpa Bill.

  11. Scoring goals with slap shots from centre ice. Mowing down batters with unhittable pitches. Hitting the ball a country mile. Pounding volleyballs off the heads of opposing players. Shooting way under par using just three of his golf clubs. Bill was the greatest athlete of my generation. He was also the greatest of people with a giant heart made of gold, friendly, fun, sensitive, a protector, a momma’s boy in the nicest way whose father was his hero. It was an honour to call Bill my friend. My condolences to the family.

  12. My condolences to Bill’s family. I got to know him a bit over the past year working in the vet clinic where he brought his pups that he loved SO much. The last chat I had with him he pulled out his phone to show me a joke he thought I’d like. He was such a nice person and I sure am sorry to learn of his sudden passing. He will be deeply missed.

  13. I will miss you Uncle Billy. Learning different BBQ cooking tricks is one thing I will have forever. I will miss your rosey red cheeks and big laugh. You will be dearly missed.

    Thank you to those putting on your stories it has been fun reading them.

    Love your Niece Brandy
