Mrs. Andrews, I’m very sorry to hear about your loss. I knocked on your door hundreds of times to “collect” as your Evening Telegram paper boy in the late seventies and early eighties. I was always greeted warmly and recall your husband’s smile as if it were yesterday. Very best regards from Owen Sound, Ontario.

Had many good times with Bill in the Hardware department back in the late 70’s. He had the respect and friendship of the whole staff with his good spirit and easy going manner.

He’ll be missed by all who knew him

Mrs Andrews, So very sorry to hear of Mr Andrews passing . I have many fond memories of him growing up on Lomac Road. When he worked at Woolco he was able to get me my first cabbage patch doll when I was a little girl for mom and dad to give me on my birthday. Thinking of you at this time and remembering you in my prayers.
