Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Bill and I were friends in school and crossed paths a couple times afterward. The last time at a Husky Station Restaurant on Highway 16 in Saskatchewan. It was a few years after his terrible injury and he was doing well driving truck. We were going to Manitoba and he was going to Alberta. He was always fun and I am sorry to hear of his death. He was friends with Ken Jones who we were in school with as well. My thoughts are with him and his family. So very sorry. - Posted by: Lorraine Chay (Friend ) on: Sep 04, 2023
