    Bill was a welcome addition to the staff of East Lambton SS at the end of his career, an excellent teacher and valued contributor to school life generally. I enjoyed many hours commuting to Watford with Bill, profiting from his experience, both in teaching and farming, clearly both loves for him. He made a difference in the lives of many, gifts that will not be forgotten.

    be forgotten.
