Bill was a great big brother. He taught me to swim at Roosevelt Pool by throwing me in and watching that I didn’t drown. He also helped me to buy my first car.

Thank you, Mary for taking such great loving care of our brother over the last two years. Your love and diligence
made his last days comfortable and filled with love. We all love you.

Diana and Tanya, thank you for being there for your Dad. I know this gave him great joy. We love you.

We were so sorry to hear about Billie’s death. Dennis and Ronnie always spoke highly of Billie! They loved his wonderful sense of humor, his kindness, his love of family and all the characteristics that made him such an outstanding friend.
We know the heartache and grief his family is experiencing now and we send our love and condolences.

Our lives go on without you,
But nothing is the same.
We have to hide our heartache
When someone speaks your name.

Sad are the hearts that love you.
Silent are the tears that fall.
Living here without you
Is the hardest part of all.

You did so many things for us;
Your heart was kind and true
And when we needed someone
We could always count on you.

The special years will not return
When we were all together
But with the love that’s in our hearts
You’ll walk with us forever.

Uncle Bill was such a wonderful person, and I will always be grateful for the memories I have of him. He was an amazing person and what a remarkable life. He had a passion for the great outdoors and his family. He was hardworking, funny, honest, loved to laugh, and had a zest for life.
I can’t find the words to say how sorry I am, to my cousins and Aunt Mary. I know this is a very difficult time for you all. We are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers. He will be missed by so many. Love you all.
May he rest in peace, until we meet again.

My Dad was the best father and grandfather there was,
He was the funniest guy who could always make you laugh . He loved all his grandkids with all his heart and they loved him in return. He was always there to help you , He loved camping and hunting and just being outdoors. I’m going to miss your kisses and your hugs you gave every time you greeted me hello and said goodbye.
Rest In Peace I love you Your loving daughter Dianne
