I am deeply saddened with the finding of Bills death. He was a bright light and joy when I visited Starbucks. We enjoyed the occasional beer, dinner and intriguing spirited conversation and his knowledge on many subjects were well worth listening to. I am glad to have known him.

We're so sorry to learn this sad news about Willem. He was a wonderful neighbour when he lived on Catherine Street In Victoria. He will be missed.

I get back to Victoria every so often, and looked forward to catching up with Bill whenever I was in town. Will miss having a cup of tea, sometimes a dutch desert and a laugh or two.
Bill was brilliant as director of our church's 'Hosanna' Easter drama/musical production in the 90's. He made some life long friends and was perfect for the role. He was also a caring and faithful son to his mom whom he looked after for many years.
Words to describe Bill would be good natured, generous, kindhearted and intelligent. He always made visitors feel at home.

Thank you for your genuine friendship Bill. I will miss you!

May the good Lord hold you and give you rest.

We loved and respected Bill's wonderful nature. He was intelligent, kind to a fault, generous, sweet and very innocent. He was truly a dear dear friend to both Archie and I. We had him for dinner a couple of months ago. He never came empty handed. That time it was gorgeous roses from his garden. He had incredible faith and I believe he is in eternal peacefulness. He was a devoted son, friend and loved his family. I see in that fabulous picture of him he is wearing his Palm Springs hat which we all went on a hunt for when he visited us a couple of years ago. We loved you Willem and will miss you so much. Archie and Judy MacKinno

Dearest Bill: Your fellow bikers from the Summer of 1960 wished me to add their names to those of us who will miss you....Doug (dec'd) Joyce, Judy, Harvey, Joanie, Carole, Gloria and me, Sue.
Farewell dear Bill and happy riding.

I first met Bill in 1960 when we bicycled through Europe together for three months. He was a skinny funny guy from Sault Ste Marie, Ontario and very outgoing.. We have seen each other over the years and I was fortunate to meet his mother as well. He was a truly kind-hearted man and he will be missed. Rhona and I treasure the Dutch tile he gave us for our kitchen and it will remind us of him every time we look at it.
