Condolence From: Pasquale & Sharon Di Sano
Condolence: Sharon & I would like to send our most sincere condolences to Sandy, Marjorie & Nancy and family. Bill was one of the most respected and admired individuals I have ever known. He was a very special person who treated everyone with respect and politeness. He was, by far, the best math teacher I ever had, having taught me Grade 11 Geometry. A few years later I joined the staff at KLCVI and had the pleasure of being a colleague of his until he retired. He was a very influential person in my life and we will miss him dearly.

Condolence: To the whole Beard family,
Our deepest sympathy for the lose of your dad. He was a truly kind and gentle person. He taught me at Queen Elizabeth school many years ago and he worked with my mum and dad in the Kirkland Lake school system for many years as well. They had nothing but good to say about your dad. Sorry for your loss.
