Relation: Lifelong friend since grade 8

It was with great sadness Jean & I heard of Bill’s sudden passing, we shared many happy experiences in our younger days. Bill was 5 weeks older than me and I still remember the night Bill, Jim, Don and myself hotwired his dads car and drove to St Albert looking for girls. his dad caught up with us on our way back (empty handed) not a happy camper. May you rest in peace. John & Jean Clark
