    Julie and Trevor Crawfors says:
    My first memory of Bill (that I remember) was at church when both his brother Harold and he came up to me and said hi Julie, we are your uncles Harold and Bill. I was so confused but both of them had mischief in their eyes and I realized they were kidding me. They remembered me as a toddler visiting my Grandparents farm. Trevor and I enjoyed so much having Sunday dinners with Bill and Robert at the grill, and the famous Thursday night meals (best meals!) at Coyote Club. Bill was someone who would give the shirt off his back for anyone who needed it. He was someone I looked up to very much. My heart felt condolences and prayers for Patricia, Donna Sandy and family Eric, Giles and Linda Harold and Ruby and Marylou and Family. RIP Bill. Hope you're cooking something good with Sammy in Heaven. ❤
