We have known and worked with Bill since the start of our careers, then as Ambulance Attendance and then as Paramedics. Many a good days and nights spent in his company. He always had a laugh and a helping hand when needed. He will be missed in the EMS Family. Rest now Billy!

I worked with Bill at the Henderson General Hospital back around 1968. He, Jim Oneil, Gary Peters and I were the ER Orderlies. Mike, I recall you worked there as well part time and might recall me. In any case Bill left first and went to Fleetwood Ambulance. I recall Jim went to Clarkes Ambulance Service while I ended up at Green's Ambulance in Burlington. Bill had an excellent reputation as a medic in the day. I have posted his passing on the Ontario Ambulance Historical Facebook Page, where a number of people who knew him have responded. RIP Bill, though we lost contact many years ago, I have never forgot you!
