We were so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. We have known him since his New York Life days, and he has been our insurance agent for many years. We will miss our visits and chats as we always made a point of dropping by to see him when we came to Calgary. Our sincerest condolences to Tracey, Max and Rosemary.

Tracey abd family
We were very sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He was just at our home in Dewinton in September. We are the people who he got the trees from for the Stavely golf course. We have known Bill for over 40 years and he was a good friend. He was always laughing and had many stories to tell.
We will miss him greatly. Our prayers and thoughts go out to you at this time.
