Bill is now happily reunited with his darling wife Helen.

Devoted and proud Grandfather of Nathan & Sophie, and Mitchell MacDonald; Simon Watson; Charlotte & Fraser McLachlan, James & Rebecca Cochrane; Zac & Ashleigh, Zoe & Peter, and Molly Watson; Luke & Lydia, Tom & Emily, and Harry Moore; Adam, Genevieve and Harriet Raateland.

The family wish to acknowledge the team at Summerset for their wonderful loving care of Bill.

“An innings well played, bowled before a century made”.

A private cremation will be held, and a celebration of Dad’s life held at a later date.
