I am saddened to read about Bill’s passing. Bill was one of my supervisors when I interned at Alberta Environment, the summer of 2003 & 2004. An exceptional man with a heart of gold; he was always keen & supportive of my ideas at work. I will remember how fondly he spoke about surrounding lakes and the watershed systems in Alberta. My thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones - may you find comfort in your memories.
Warm regards,
Simoi Cruickshank.
