Bill and Judy met nearly 70 years ago at Sherkston Quarry in Canada. They had many wonderful years at the beach and cottage in Ridgeway. Bill could often be found swimming and gathering stones at the beach, playing tennis and bridge with family and friends that were just like family, scraping the cottage with the radio and those peaceful, quiet autumns at the cottage. In Syracuse, you would often see Bill walking through Onondaga Park and playing bridge with friends.
