Very sorry to hear of your loss. I worked for Bill and Mary at Loch Lomond as a liftie many years ago. They were very good people to work for. I continue to ski at Loch to this day and we often share memories of Bill and Mary and the 'good old days'.

Very sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He made such an impression on me as a young boy skiing at Loch in the early sixties; he had a way of making everything FUN! I remember the days when I was about 7 and he used to try to trade a plate of fries and gravy for my peanut butter sandwich;)
I am very sorry the news of Bil's passing. My lately husband Jim and our whole family knew him and appreciated his help and friendship with his wife Mary. It was a great time of our skiing life. Best Wishes to all his family. He was a very important part of skiing around the Lakehead.

We were sad to learn that Bill has passed away. We last saw him when he came to Thunder Bay to celebrate his 90th birthday. We first met Bill & Mary when we came to Fort William from England. One of the attractions was the abundance of ski hills then. We settled on Loch Lomond, and there was nothing more welcoming than "signing in" with Mary & Ethel - no lift tickets for members in the mid-sixties, just a coloured sticker. Bill was indeed a special character, always a ready smile and that unforgettable twinkle in his eyes. He and his family had a passion for ski racing, and Bill was a big supporter when the fledgling "Nancy Greene" league was started up in 1968-69. Our deepest sympathies to all the family, and a very special thank you to wife Deanna who took such loving care of Bill these past few years, from Brian, Irene, David and Suzanne Pawson.
