Our sincere sympathy to Bill's family on the loss of your father and grandfather. We have so many great memories of Bill during our soccer days with the Medicine Hat Soccer Association - both as on the executive and coaching the rep teams. Bill was a great man to work with and travel with. You have such great memories of your Dad to comfort you at this time.
Our sympathy, Maureen and Cyril Bender
