Bill was born in Winnipeg, MB but has lived since the age of seven in Morden. Despite his many challenges since birth, Bill enjoyed life. He was interested in many things especially football and hockey. He loved his family and friends and loved to joke and tease and carry on long conversations. His wit and great sense of humour were a delight.  Bill resided for the last years of his life at the Association for Community Living residence on 7th St. in Morden and at Tabor Home. Many thanks to the staffs at both of these places; Erin and Lissa, his community workers, the nurses who gave Bill such good care especially Derrick, Ryan, Kelly, Mandy and Evelyn, Morris Vincent, Erin Lancaster and all the others.
