I always thought so much of both Bill and Joan. They were special people and will certainly be missed in the community. I especially remember good times with them when I provided entertainment for their 25th Wedding Anniversary. We had an evening of fun and laughs as we celebrated together. I will remember Bill's family in my prayers and thoughts.

I would like to share my deepest condolences to the family. As most neighbors were, Bill and Joan were so much like family while I was growing up on Garver street. I will cherish the memories of and stories of fishing trips that Bill shared over the years. Bill was always a great friend, co worker and neighbor to both me and my dad. He will be missed greatly.
