When I was just a 1 year old, and living with my family next door to "Uncle Bill" and "Auntie Marion" in Rockton, I became very ill, and Uncle Bill, with his training as a fire fighter, was able to get me stable before an ambulance arrived and I was rushed to hospital. He liked to remind me of this story. I think it meant as much to him as it did to me. I loved him so much, and I know he loved me.

I love you, Uncle Bill

My deepest sympathy to family and all who was graced by the opportunity to have known Uncle Bill. You will be hard pressed to meet a man as strong yet soft spoken, gental and laid back as Uncle Bill. He was a man who put his family first but had time for everyone. I can truly say, he made this world a better place. Thank you Uncle Bill.

So many memories of my Uncle Bill and Aunt Marion. I lived with them for a time as a child. Those road trips to Dorset in the old red Hillman car with Uncle Bill, Margo, Morgan, Harvey and myself were childhood adventures. Pony rides on the obstinate Danny Boy while Uncle Bill led us around , the little playhouse that Uncle Bill built for us to play in, the camper trailer in the back yard we slept in, even the outhouse (there was no indoor bathroom in their home for a while so he would escort us at night), family dinners, helping in the shop and "helping" him decide on arborite colours for his jobs - I could go on and on. Uncle Bill was clever too - he could figure out carpentry fixes all day long. When I had children, Uncle Bill and Aunt Marion babysat them as well. Most of all what I remember is that you could feel the love in their home. <3

Uncle Bill was sort of like my next door neighbour, tougher, country version of Mr. Rogers. He had his uniform: his button down shirt with a blue or grey sweater over top. He was so patient with us kids...even though he told on me a few times, one being when I was on our roof while my parents were away. One fond memory is Uncle Bill bringing in a dump truck of sand every spring. All the kids would wait while the truck backed up. Then we would race up the “mountain” like ants on an anthill.
I always think of uncle Bill (and my dad) in the barn when I smell wood that has just been sawed.
Uncle Bill and Auntie Marion were integral people in shaping my childhood, and the woman I am today. I’m thankful for my childhood years with the best neighbours a kid could want/need.

I'll always remember coming to Rockton everyday, playing with Chinook in the front and Uncle Bill walking past whistling, I loved to hear his whistling. At that age I kept hearing my friends (his grandchildren) call him Papa, so I did too, it suited I thought, I saw him more than my own relatives and he practically helped raise us all, to us it didn't matter. Nana and Papa (uncle Bill, and Aunt Marian) will forever be the most special people. Going over to their house as a kid will forever be the best days of my life. My deepest condolences to the whole Crewson family. They both are deeply loved and missed.

Bill and Marion cared for all four of our children. Clark - 28 this year in October, Sarah - 26, Jessica - 24 and Ashley -21. Our whole family loved Uncle Bill and Aunt Marion. They were always so heavily involved in the community, with their family and with so many other children's lives. They are both deeply missed.

Our deepest condolences to the whole Crewson family.
Love, the McCarron Family xxoo

Remarks on behalf of all previous Flamborough Firefighters..........
As a member of the Flamborough Fire Dept. Serving the Rockton Station "Bill" made his mark on our community every time he was called out. A dedicated volunteer rising through the ranks to a Chief of the Department. "Flamborough 3" will long be remembered by those of use who served under him. So many stories to tell........... At our reunion a few years ago, everyone that attended flocked to get a moment of Bills time to reminisce of years gone by. What a great day we all had and a tribute to a man so well respected. It was a pleasure to have known him. RIP Flamborough 3!

Bill always took the time to stop and listen.
He would absorb, think, and provide a helpful thought. Always with a sparkle in his eye and that special sly smile.
And if you were really lucky, he would tell you he better ‘take a measurement’
He will continue to stand tall with full integrity.
He made my childhood, just that much better.
Love to all his family, and my families blessings.
