Bill's commitment to his work was evident in the respect and admiration he earned from his colleagues.

Outside of work, Bill had a wide range of interests that showcased his love for life and his community. He enjoyed card playing with friends and family.  Bill also had a passion for farming, spending many years working the land in Princeton, Ontario.
