Our heartfelt sympathy to all of the family on Bill's passing . I met Cousin Bill at the Kammermayer Family Reunion in Saskatoon in 1995. He had a twinkle in his eye and was so friendly and out-going! I regret that we never got to know him better. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this sad time. May Bill's soul rest in peace.

I met my cousin Bill for the first and only time at the Kammermayer Reunion in 1995.
However, I had heard many stories from my sisters Theresa and Agnes who worked the tobacco harvest with Bill and several other cousins. They had such fond memories of those summers and Bill seemed to be in most of their escapades!
My sincere condolences and prayers for the Kammermayer family.

To Brenda and Billy's extended family, may your memories of Billy comfort you in this time of loss.
I remember Bill (my cousin) as fun and gregarious.
Here's a pic of my dad ( Jim Schmitz) and Billy at a party at our house so very many years ago.

To the family of Uncle Bill Kammermayer,
We want to express to you all our sympathy in the death of your father, grandfather, great- grandfather, brother and husband,
Uncle Bill and Auntie Lil were my godparents.
I recall the many trips back and forth across the border to visit. Always so much fun. I remember your whole family tumbling out of a single vehicle on arrival at the farm in the heat of the summer. A 6 hr drive with no air conditioning I'm sure. A short but sweet visit with lots of laughs. Always recall your parents laughing.

Uncle Bill was a hard-working dedicated man. As parents now we realize how much of a sacrifice our own parents made so we could benefit.

It's one thing to lose one parent but quite another when both are gone. You do feel a bit like an adult orphan. But I know your family to be very strong together and there for each other. That will not change.

I hope in the near future we can properly celebrate Uncle Bill's life. Hugs to you all.

Hello, Brenda (Tullis) Kammermayer, Bill's wife, Brenda, Sr. Rita and Jim Kammermayer, Bill's sisters and brother, and Valerie (Reaser) Kammermayer, Bill's, twin brother, Joe's wife!

In the early 40s Billie, his twin brother, Joey, and I, were together quite often in St Catharines.

We were first cousins twice over. His Dad, Bill senior, married my father's sister, and my Dad married his father's sister. Not only that, but the two men were close friends.

In the mid 40s their family moved to Saskatoon , our family moved to grow tobacco in southern Ontario, and they would come to work with us in the tobacco harvest during August and the early part of September; 1950 -- joined by two other first cousins, five in all, Theresa (Goetz) Rosin, and her sister, Agnes (Goetz) Rollenhagen -- was the last harvest we were together.

We were pretty much all family, along with Billie and Joey's sister, who we called, Little Mary, because my mother and older sister were also called, Mary. We couldn't have been much closer.

I look forward to a replay of the 1995 family reunion but, "Hereafter, in a better world than this," as the Bard of Avon says.

Sad to hear of Bill's passing, really enjoyed spending time with him on the board and at committee meetings when he was at the CAGC as founding president, he had a unique sense of humor and was very committed to the seismic community. Condolences to the family and friends.

“Uncle Bill” was one of our favorites and will certainly be missed - may he rest in peace. My mother, Mary Lamborn, was Bill’s sister, and they always had a great time when they visited, as did/do we with our cousins. I hope we are able to meet with his many descendants and friends to celebrate his rich and storied life. Until then, our condolences and prayers go out to all those he influenced these past 87 years.

I only remember meeting my cousin Bill once, at the Kammermayer reunion in 1995. He was such fun, and so kind. My condolences to his large family, who will miss him I'm sure.
