Bill was born and raised in Danbury, Saskatchewan, where he met Violet. In 1956 they were married and started their family.

The family would like to thank Dr. Laakso, Dr. Turner, Dr. Woods, the nurses on 2-North at St. Joseph's Hospital, especially Lindsay and Jessica. The family would also like to extend a special thanks to Nicole on 3C at TBRHSC for your kind and compassionate care. You truly went above and beyond the call of duty.
