Bill was an exceptional person that I had the privilege of meeting and knowing for many years when we first met at my plumbing shop when he was in maintenance at the Niagara Clifton Group. It was always a pleasure when seeing him again at school functions and carnivals when he was working the grill and feeding those hungry kids with the most delicious burgers. My deepest condolences to the family as he will be sadly missed.

Dear Vera and Lori and Family,
We were very saddened to hear the news of Bill's passing. We haven't known you and Bill for long but we consider it a privilege to have met and been in your's and Bill's company the few times we were. We also consider it a privilege to be the good stewards of the beautiful home, that for 57 years, was filled with a loving family and loving memories. The seashells will always have a place in our gardens and the window wells. The sparrow will always be welcomed above our back door to take shelter from the cold winters. The slate tiles in the sunroom, the rec room, and the history of how it all came to be will always be admired and shared with others.

Saddened to hear about Bill. Many great maintenance shop memories of Bill when we worked on Clifton Hill. His whole face smiled when he smiled and his whole body laughed when he laughed! My sincere condolences to Vera and Lori and the rest of his family.

My sympathy to the Muir family on Bill's passing. My memories go back a few years when Bill and I shared many Kinsmen experiences , I was the Deputy Governor of Zone D and I could always count on Bill. He will be remembered.
