SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS SYLVIA, HUGS TO YOU AND BILLYS FAMILY.
Gerald & Vina Moses
Billy was a person who when he gave you a hug, you knew you had a hug….He was a special person and though quiet, had a good sense of humour. Gerald and I learned a lot from Billy about RV’ing and about life. We are sad that he has passed away…sad for Sylvia, for Al and for his family & friends…. Billy will remain a part of those fond memories we have of camping, of quiet talks and huge hugs. We will miss seeing him at the grocery store every week and hearing his distinctive voice as he greeted us….RIP Billy.

I am so saddened by Billy’s death, he truly was a wonderful man. I will fondly remember his hardy laugh and winning smile—and yes—my first crush!!! His handsome good looks started my obsession with bald men. I will keep a special place in my heart for his memory.
Bill was a great guy; may he no longer suffer; rest peacefully!
