    I have so many great memories of Bill and played golf with him every Sunday for many years. We had so much fun and I will always treasure those memories of this warm, intelligent fun loving man that I called a friend. Bill never had an unkind word to say about anyone and his spirit will live in the hearts of so many that new him.

    You were exceptional Bill and loved by so many. Nigel and Ursula Nelmes
