Our favorite Uncle, in childhood and adulthood. Admired and loved by his little brother, our father, Les, who passed away only 7 months earlier. Warrior, hero, prankster, surf swimmer, animal lover, tri-ominos champ, deep thinker and sharp witted until the end. We will miss you terribly, Uncle Bill. May you rest in peace. Love your neice, Leslee Parr and her husband, Michael Sneary
