I met Bill when he reached out for volunteer help back in 2014. Always welcoming, friendly and hard-working. A man with great example for others: humble, unselfish and dedicated.

It isn’t possible to walk the trails at Carkeek and not watch for Bill there. For his persistent friendliness to everyone, my son and self included, I am grateful. Very sorry news indeed.
Andrea Frank, Carkeek Park Salmon Steward
I am very sorry to hear about the loss of Bill. I didn’t know him for very long. He was, however, a great help to the salmon program and a pleasure to be around when working with him
Ashley Orr, Green River College Student Volunteer
Bill, you will be missed. I have never worked with a kinder, more dedicated person in my life. You have been a blessing to Carkeek Park, the salmon and the Salish Sea. We will lift a glass in your honor tonight.
David Koon, President, Carkeek Park Advisory Council
Oh Bill… You had a look at the hydraulics at the Imprint Pond and said, “wait, let’s try this instead.” And we did. Good call Bill…
