Bill was a wonderful friend to my Dad,Clyde Sutliff. He used to stop in the morning & pickmy dad up at my house where my Dad lived. He also arranged a retirement dinner at Drumlins for my Dad. He was a great person & a great voice for his Barbershop Harmony. Many will miss him. God Bless Edith & his family. May God put Bill busy singing with the angles.
