Too many memories to share. Was a great friend whom I spent many years curling with. He was always up for a bunch of laughs at the table after the game. He made sure that all those around him had a good time - it will be strange heading out on the ice and not hear Bill's unique sound when he wanted us to sweep harder. His favorite shot to call - center line guard. You will be missed Bill.......

Every Christmas we looked forward to Bill stopping by to drop off Debbie’s famous cookies. We would enjoy a fireside chat, catching up on the past year, with Bill proudly sharing stories of his family.


We will miss those visits.

I knew Bill through Stelco as well. I especially enjoyed his company whenever we curled against each other. A very pleasant guy ... so sad that he isn’t still here enjoying his family whom he spoke of so proudly. RIP dear friend.

I worked with Bill at Stelco, EDS, HP, contracting and U.S.Steel. It wasn't a straight path and it wasn't always easy, but Bill's knowledge, ingenuity, and friendship made it easier. I'm happy to have known him and sad that he's gone too soon.

I worked with Bill in information technology at Stelco. He was a pleasure to work with and a smart guy. Unbeatable combination.

Billy, his Brother Bobby and I spent our summer weekends swimming, skiing and fishing together on the inner Bay of Lake Erie. Our parents became friends, our fathers had boats so we we convinced our fathers that they should fish together so we always had a boat we could use. I remember a day the three of us were exploring the channels in the Marsh on the east side of the Bay. We got lost, so Billy climbed a tree (the only tree in the marsh) to figure out where we were. Some time later, after we had navigated out of the channels, he found that he had lost his sunglasses. He was sure he lost them during the tree climb. Billy led an unwilling crew back to the tree and found his glasses. Billy was always the leader. I loved his sense of humor and when I think of him I always see a smile on his face. My condolences to Deb and the rest of the family.

We remember sitting on a beach chair in Cuba watching Bill sail by on a hobby cat...enjoying his quiet time. Later finding Bill with a big smile at the ice cream station, a favorite pitstop.
