Jane and the Johnson family! My thoughts are with you folks. Although I hadn't seen Bill for a number of years I will never forget some of the great times we had at the Kent Club. Bill was always full of laughs and had many of good stories. All the very best!

Dear Jane and family, Bill was a great man. I know he was the love of your life. He would want you to remember your good days and get on now with your lives'. You were so dedicated to him. So sorry for your loss of your Bill. All of my best, Sharren Eveland.

How sad to hear about Bill's passing. We got to know Bill sometime ago during our regular visits with family at Riverview. Each time we saw Bill, there was a pleasant 'hello,' handshake and conversation. He was so friendly and his smile was infectious. A kind man all the way around. Our sincere condolences to his wife and family. Jim, Tricia and Ethan Tengelis

Jane & Family…my sincere condolences on your loss of such an amazing man. I remember Bill as a neighbour on River Road. He was wonderful to my kids, letting them hunt on his property, boat in the pond and letting the boys play pool. During COVID I was a screener at RVG and I had the pleasure of meeting you Jane. Your dedication and daily visits were so inspirational. Please know you all are in my thoughts and prayers as you celebrate the life of a long life well lived.

Jackie - I’m so very sorry to hear of your father’s passing. I hope that your many happy memories of him will continue to live in your heart, bringing you comfort and peace. Hugs, Shelley
