    I have known you all for almost all of my life, and your Dad was always, to me, smiling and enjoying life. He and my Dad had a long friendship. I will always remember my trip to Saltspring Island..what fun!
    My thoughts are with you all.

  3. Bill was a great source and knowledge for those of us who starting out in the fire service. He was encouraging and helpful, always there to offer a bit of advice when he thought it was needed. His Family should be proud of his achievements and accomplishments.
    I feel privileged to have met and for a brief time served with Bill as part of the MRVFD.
    Our lives are richer for having known Him,
    Capt. Ken Kelleway, (retired)
