    Dan and family,
    We were so very sorry to hear of Billy’s passing. He was something. I remember when you both worked together in Upholstery and rented space from my Dad at the Scotty’s Glass Shop. As a young girl I often popped into the shop and found Billy to always be so hospitable and ever willing to let me check out what you were working on – boats and especially hot rods. I still remember his gorgeous red corvette convertible (around 83 I think) which he let me sit in and get my picture taken after the Medicine Hat Parade. It may have fuelled my own passion and appreciation for classic cars.

    I will miss his smile and congenial disposition. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    Margaret (nee McCulloch) Simon
