Hi Gail
My deepest sympathies. I always enjoyed so much our golfing times together and the great support he always gave me in our business relationship. Travelling on business with him was always a great experience and he had my complete respect as a true person of integrity. I think of him often. My thoughts are with you at this difficult time but I know the great memories you have of him will carry you through. Take care.

Bil was my golfing budd when we played at St Andrews East, he was a member of the older boys team the played for the Basshaunt Trophy every year. He was a good friend and will be missed. Unfortunately we are in Barbados and will not be able to attend his celebration of life. My prayers got out to Gail, his children and grand children all who meant so much to him.

Unfortunately, because of circumstances beyond my control, I will be unable to attend my brother's funeral on Saturday. I deeply regret that I will not be able to express my deep regrets in person. My thoughts are with the entire family. Judy Sturgis

I was deeply saddened by the news of Bill's passing. I hope that during this time that all of those that have been touched by Bill can find peace knowing that he had a wonderful life and is now in a place where he can be free to golf and ski all he wants without any pain.
Love Always, Rachel & Tyler

When Bill worked at Trench he would walk the shop floor and acknowledge everyone, he always remembered his last conversations and it made us feel important. We sometimes talk about the good days at Trench and Bill's name always comes up. Bill will always be fondly remembered for his gentlemanly manner.
My prayers are with Bill and his family.

Gail, my heart goes out to you. Unfortunately, I am in Ottawa on business from Friday morning until Sunday evening, and won't be able to be present in person.
I have carried, and will continue to carry, Bill with me wherever I go: such a fine man. As Hemingway wrote, to friends who had just lost their sixteen-year-old son to leukaemia, 'No one you love is ever dead.' Truer words were never written. blessings, roger.
