Bill was the first person I met when I came to Edmonton, he guided me and educated me about insurance in Alberta, he was patient with me when my husband passed away at an early age. He was a great friend and will be missed. God bless and may he rest in peace. He was a good man.

I knew Bill through the Woodworking Group at the Strathcona Seniors’ Centre. He was always helpful, caring, skilled, cheerful and interesting…. an all round great guy who will be truly missed.

We haven’t had much contact with Bill and Gertie for many years, which is regrettable. However as time passes and families grow, that seems to happen to everyone. In our years as neighbors on the farm near Marsden I remember Bill as a kindly” Big Brother” with a caring sense of humor. Our condolences to the all the family relatives.

So sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. Bill was one of the great, steady and talented members of the woodworkers group at the Strathcona Senior Centre. We had a lot of fun together in the last few years and he was great source of knowledge. Always cheerful! Coffee time was the best when he would tell his stories.

Dan and Joan Newman
