Bill was very prolific when building and creating things. As a carpenter he loved working with his hands and it showed when he was speaking. Bill was always there for friends and family. To all Bill was such a great man, husband, father, grandfather and friend. Bill will always be remembered for these attributes.

Thank you to Major Larry of the Community Church for performing the service. Thank you to Heritage Village nurses and staff for looking after Bill from August 11, 2003 to January 20, 2008. Service was held February 2, 2008 at the family home.

Bill will always be with us. Love Sharon and family
