Condolence from Ray and Judy Mills on August 6th, 2017 11:23 AM

Dear June, Rob & Mary, Jason, Ruth Ann & Matt and sons;
Please accept our deepest sympathy. We know how difficult this is and what you have been going through these many last weeks. Our thoughts and prayers have been with you and continue to be with you. Bill was a wonderful neighbour! He was quiet, and understanding, concerned for his land, careful of the environment, and extremely neat and tidy. He kept his property and possessions immaculate, a hard thing to do when you live on a farm. But Bill managed to do it. Spruce Grove always looked like it was ready for a party. We have missed him cutting the grass this spring on a regular basis. We were very blessed to have known him as a friend, a neighbour, a son, husband, father and grandfather, a helper in the church, a pilot, and one who preserved the land. Thinking of good times over the many years we have lived beside him and thinking of each one of you. God Bless.

Condolence from Keith Jacober on August 6th, 2017 11:47 AM

A long life lived well is a blessing for all. Uncle Bill, you will none the less be greatly missed. Your nephew Keith.

Dear June, Rob, Ruth Ann and families.
Sending hugs to all in hearing of Bills passing.
Such fond memories I have of reunions at Spruce Grove.
I remember Bill as such a quiet, kind and gentle man. Dad and
Mom thought so much of your dad and mom and they were all
a part of the beginning of each others relationships.
You have been truly blessed to have had him in your lives for so
long but it certainly doesn’t make the final goodbyes any easier.
Thinking of all of you during this sad time.
