Bill loved fishing and sports.  As a youngster, Bill started playing hockey….always playing goalie.  Bill hung up his skates in his forties.  Fishing was always the back drop of his life. 

In 2005, Bill retired from the City of Winnipeg, after 30 years of service.  The same year, he joined Arlington Fishing Club, where he enjoyed the great outdoors and comradery.  

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me

When tomorrow starts without me,
And I’m not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me;
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too.
So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don’t think we’re far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I’m right here, in your heart.

    Our condolences to George and the entire family. If George is the example of his father, his dad must have been a great man. Robin & Cheryl.

    My Condolences to the Family. Bill and I worked together at Animal Services (Pound) on Logan Avenue from 1988 to 1992 . Bill was a really good guy and always had such a kind personality that it was hard not to like him! He was often stuck in the office with me and we worked great together. Thank you for the friendship Bill and rest in peace.

      Rest in peace my friend. I’ve known Bill from when he lived on Dufferin ave when he must have been about maybe 10 or 12 yrs. Old. One of the most polite, friendly & considerate person you could meet. Gonna miss your friendship, till we meet at our future fishing hole & exchange stories of the one that got away. Rest in peace Bill, you were a good friend.
