Mary, we were sorry to hear about Bill’s passing. Just want to say you are in our thoughts and prayers. We haven’t kept in touch but you were great neighbours. Over the years we have told Bill’s story of putting a wood post in the ground with an electric outlet attached to it and plugging his trailer cord into the outlet when camped at the Chain lakes  rustic campground.  Other campers were surprised that they now had one site with electricity. We thought his sense of humour was hilarious. That story has given many folks a good laugh over the years.
Rest In Peace Bill.

Bill could always tell a good story and I will always remember his big smile and all the wonderful fishing trips. He taught me how to clean my first trout. RIP.
