To Marg and family, Phyllis, Lawrence, David and Vicki. The word indeed has lost an amazing individual our cousin known to us as “Big Will” as he used to call himself when he was passing by Mom and Dads while making his deliveries to Toronto in his earlier days. He gave us many happy memories as children. Some I know we will cherish forever. Prayers are being said for all. Love your cousins. Sheila, Kathy, Christine, Jerry, Maureen, Paul and Janet McGuire.

I am sorry to hear of Big Will’s passing. I cherish the memories I have from Willys Burger Stop. Bill was a lot of fun and had a great sense of humor. I have never met or will never meet another Big Will. He was a huge influence on me and I’m so grateful to have known him. Marg, I often think of you all and I’m so sorry for your loss. Big T
