I met William a few years ago at Just Us Cafe. We sat next to each other enjoying a good breakfast and a hot cup of coffee. As we began talking we discovered what a small world it is. We would often sit and talk over breakfast. I saw the love he had for his family and his mother. I wish his family and friends all of God's peace and comfort during this difficult time.

William was a fine man and I will miss our conversations

I can’t seem to come up with words to express for Daniel, Margaret, Berley, Pete and the rest of the family. Since the end of September, 2020 we spent countless time on the phone talking and reminiscing. Daniel you were his pride! He loved you so much!! Margaret, Berley and Pete, family was everything to him. I remember sitting in his Mother’s kitchen talking to her and with the grands. William loved being an uncle.
I will always have a place in my heart for him. Much love to all!!
