My deepest sympathies to Anne and the family. Willy and I had many adventures together. I learned so much from him, he feels more like a brother but he was a real friend.
Goodnight Willski, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

My deepest sympathies to Anne and family. I met Will and Anne in their Vineland days through Memory Lane comics in the early-mid 80s. We reconnected a couple of years back in St. Catharines and I’m so glad we got that opportunity to say hi and chat for an hour. Wishing you well.

I first met Willy in 1981. Just walked into Memory Lane Comics on Geneva Street in St. Catharines. Started a conversation and we’ve been friends ever since. He never took any crap from anyone and always stood up for what he believed in. He was always able to laugh at the craziest things. I can’t help but think of all the good times we shared. I’m sure he and Bruce are laughing it up right now. He will be greatly missed. My condolences to Anne, Helen and Sarah. My thoughts are with you.

My sincere condolences to his loved ones. I met Willy when he opened Memory Lane on Geneva St. way back when and they decided to call me Spike. Great to visit and shared a lot of laughs there. Lost touch with him thru the years, but was glad to see him again at the flea market. He loved to talk and had a great laugh. I’ll miss him. RIP Willy.

Time the most valuable commodity, has run short for my Uncle Willy, but my memories of him are alive and well in my heart. I’m glad you’re at peace.
A couple of decades and i’ll be up there with you. Until then, rest up we’ll have a lot of catching up to do.❤️
