Carol,
So very sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He was a great man, very kind, sweet and loving. He always had a smile on his face so I'm sure he's blessing God with it now. He was our "walking" buddy and enjoyed his company and his funny stories. He has left an imprint on all of our hearts. His BMW family will forever hold him dear to our hearts. May God accompany you and hold you dear during this difficult time. Sincerly, Bertha Pitoniak

Carol,

I worked with Bill on line at BMW in the early days. I think I started a couple of months before him. He was a great guy and a good friend. My wife Robin and I attended several of your yearly Christmas drop-ins and even went to the fish camp in Hendersonville with you guys once or twice. That has been over 20 years ago. I am sorry to hear of Bills passing and we will keep you in our prayers. Ron Jackson

I've had the honour of knowing Bill for many years. Bill was a faithful friend and colleague and a fine gentleman. I will miss Bill greatly but will always remember our lunch times together in the cafe and the many wonderful conversations we had over the years.

May the peace of the Lord Jesus be with you all.
