So sorry to hear of Bills passing. He hired me 41 years ago as an apprentice electrician.Its been my life career.Im sure I tested his patience in the early days as I learned the trade. He was a good teacher and friend.Always Remember him singing like Louis Armstrong.Great memories.

My heart is broken for my friend Marilyn and her family. I met Bill and Marilyn about 20 years ago when we moved to Slave Lake and into the crescent. I can honestly say we became friends immediately. I will miss his “Hello” and his big hugs. His love for Marilyn showed …you would always see them holding hands , Friday was flower day…even if it was just one….they loved to host Friday night get together and sometimes there would be some dancing and nobody could dance like those two.

Rest in peace Bill you will be missed by everyone who ever met you.
