So shocked to learn of Billy ‘ s passing. We new each other all the way back to Baker. So glad was able to talk to him at the reunion and birthday party. I know the family will be at a loss. My deepest condolences.
Troy, Hobart and the rest of the Wilson family – Had much respect for Billy. He always took time to talk to me at the meetings when I was an apprentice. Meant a lot and spoke volumes of his union leadership. Brother Wilson you will be missed.
You fought a long, hard battle for too many years, Bill. Be at peace.
