Calvin “Bill” was a very good friend and we always looked forward to him stopping by our house for some “goodies” and lemonade. We will surely miss him.

Living as I do in England, I did not get to see my uncle Bill that often.
I have, however, a clear memory of being a 10 year old schoolboy In the 1960’s walking home from school in London. In front of me was an extremely smartly turned out American Air Force officer. This was the thing of dreams for a 10 year old British schoolboy!
Imagine my shock when he, not only, turned into my road but then proceeded to walk up the steps to my front door!
I was amazed to find out that this lovely person was Herb’s brother (my uncle). As you can imagine, I was the talk of my school the next day when I told them I had had tea with my uncle - the American Air Force Officer!!
I wish I had been able to get to know Bill better, but I have a memory of a wonderful man.
Rest in Peace. Richard Fox (UK)

Bill will be very much missed in our community of Heritage Harbour. He was an open-hearted, cheerful man. He radiated an optimistic, generous spirit. He and Glennis have been a loving couple who were fun. With Glennis we will share memories of Bill for years to come. Rest is peace, Bill. Pat Reagan

So sorry to hear about Bill. He always cheered us up with his pleasant personality.
We hope all the fond memories over the past 40 years bring his family comfort.
Stay strong Glennis.
