I am so sorry for your loss. I have wonderful memories of him while growing up on Iona.
Dear Jayne,Karen and Dorrie, I have many fond memories of your Dad(Bill) growing up he was always so kind and happy. He was a special guy.
My condolences to all of you. Mr. ILL-EASE, as I always called him, was quite a character. Always sporting a twinkle in his eye and an ornery grin, he made me smile every time I would encounter him. May your memories eventually make you smile, too.
Bill will always be remembered by all who knew him. Bill was a loyal BHCC member who played countless rounds of golf with all of us. Although his unique quirks on the course could be annoying, he was a gentleman and endearing who was a great friend to many! My condolences & prayers to family and friends.
Thinking of you during this difficult time. Prayers to the entire family.
Bill was a wonderful human being. He always had a smile and a kind word for all. Most of all, he was a great friend.
