Owen Sound lost a good one with Bill's passing. I remember bill from St George's as a kid and he and my dad played cards at the Crescent Club for many years and remained friends. I remember Bill Sr taking me into the Gray's dressing room during a game when I was about 9 or 10. Bill Jr was playing and Bill Sr gave me one of Bill Jr's sticks. It was like winning the lottery! Bill was kind, friendly and a role model for so many!

When I worked at the golf shop, Bill was one of my favorite members to come in the shop. He always had something nice to say to the staff, and something funny to say about his pal Wink. He must have been a popular man at his retirement community as he would often make the drive out with a friend and buy her a shirt.

It has been said that as we mourn a man who died, we should also thank God that such a man lived. Rest in peace, Bill.

Judy, William,Jr. Family & Friends. Its sad to lose someone in death. What helped me the most was prayers and faith in God’s promise at Psalm 34:18 “God is close to the broken heart: he saves those who are crushed in spirit.” For more free comforting scriptures, please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt.
