Sad to hear of Bill’s passing. I danced many a dance with light-footed Bill in the Royal Hotel, and had some wonderful conversations on all kinds of topics. I loved Bill’s sense of humour, his graciousness and he was always a gentleman. He was a friendly support and lifted my spirits many times. I appreciated his honesty and love of fun. A classy man.

He was a man of integrity and kindness.
I enjoyed many a laugh with him over the years . I will miss you Sweet William.

Rest in Peace, Bill
