Truly one of the finest men I have ever met. He was a true professional in his profession (life and Health insurance) and served his clients with honesty and integrity.
Edda and I read the notice of your passing in the paper this morning. We send our thoughts and prayers to Cecilia and family. What a wonderful man Bill was. God Bless you all.
Dearest Uncle Bill gave me my inspiration to write letters to the editor about my faith and defending the truths which we all hold dear. Thank you, Uncle Bill, for your devotion to Aunt Cece and your family for 69 years; you were a loving, committed, humble role model for all Catholic fathers and husbands. Eternal rest grant unto him, Oh Lord, and may your perpetual light shine upon him!
I am so sorry to hear this news. Bill was a great man and taught me a lot over the years I knew him. May God's grace be with you in all the days ahead.
Bill was a great man full of compassion for others including the defenseless unborn babies whom he defended always in his beliefs and writings. He was a very bright advisor in the life insurance business and helped many during his career. I worked with him and was happy to know him. My sympathies to Cis and the Cunningham family.May Bill be rewarded for his strong example of living his Catholic faith everyday. John Chouinard
