My fondest memory of working with Bill was in the 80s and the mobile crew was covering World Cup Skiing at Whistler. We decided that we'd say "hi" to every crew member during the setup. Our plan was to start at the top of the mountain and visit every camera position on the way down, ending up at the trucks.

After about 3 or 4 camera positions, having sunk to our waists in snow a few times, we concluded it wasn't the best plan we ever made. However we persevered and, once at the bottom, vowed to save such "say hi" actions for golf tournaments.

Memories of Bill go back many years to a time when I came to CBC Vancouver as a newbie script assistant. Bill was already a seasoned professional, but gratefully he had none of the bombast so prevalent in the TV business. I knew Bill as a valued, hard-working member of every TV crew he worked with. He was a man always in the moment, keeping a sharp eye on the details of every production on which he worked, a trait which made him highly regarded and well respected. But Bill was also a gentle man, kind, generous and blessed with a wonderful sense of humor that brightened many a long working day. Honored to have known him, Bill will be missed by a lifetime of dear friends and colleagues. The deepest condolences to his family.

My condolences go out to you Helen and to Colin. It was always a
pleasure to work with Bill. No one had more patience than Bill, he
was such a perfectionist with making great pictures from his television cameras. It was always a challenge to beat him at his
favorite game of snooker, I was always hoping to get one more chance, not to be Bill, but you were the best! So many wonderful memories, can't believe you are gone, but you will be remembered for
being someone really special as a friend, I will miss you very much Bill.
