Our thoughts are with you all. Bill will be missed by the Souness Family (Te Anau) We have many memories of ‘Billy’... a couple of comments from our children who grew up with Bill being part of their lives... ‘Thought he would always be hiding under a pile of junk’... ‘Loved being in the silage trucks with his corgis’... We remember Billy for his smile, his calm approach to life, his ‘warehouse & yard of parts/junk’, and his knack of finding bits to fix stuff! We’re sure you are poking around in the junk yard in the sky Billy! RIP
