Bill was one in a million. He was soft spoken and quiet at work unless riled up, which was quite often. He was an advocate for his patients and for our Paramedics. It was an honour to have worked with him. May he rest easy.

I will remember Bill as a great man with strong passions and beliefs. He worked hard to represent his fellow paramedics and was an advocate for every patient whose lives he touched over the years. He will be deeply missed by his EMS family and his community. Godspeed sir. We’ll take it from here.

I had the privilege to work with Bill as a new medic. He took the time to stress to me that we have rights in our work place. Bill stood tall and proud for our rights. He served his fellow paramedic brothers and sisters as well as his patients with dignity and respect.
