Bill was an avid boater, jet skier, snow skier, a fair weather Harley rider, also a golfer for a time but possibly too sedate a hobby ? You could find him in his garage when not participating in his extra curricular activities. He was always repairing a boat engine, fixing or remodeling a car, or repairing something for a friend. Bill had a multitude of friends that shared in all of his fun activities. He respected and enjoyed working with all the helicopter crews. Bill lived life to its' fullest, but it was taken from him too soon. He had a lot of plans for the future that will never be fulfilled. In lieu of flowers a donation to the SPCA, your local Cancer fund, and a mass at St. Paul's church in Burlington. Funeral will be at St. Paul's Church, E. Union St, and St. Mary's St. Burlington, on Friday, 9th September. The viewing is 9-10:20 am. Mass at 10:30, interment at Odd Fellows Cemetery. A luncheon will follow at Carlucci's restaurant.
