    To the Johnson Family,

    Our hearts goes out to you and your family during this very sad time. Please know that Bill will be missed by his Legion friends.

    We’ve known Bill Johnson since our days at the Bolton Legion Branch #371 and was very happy to hear about him dropping into the Woodbridge Legion #414 and continuing his membership there.

    We’ve had many conversations over the years about his trucking stories and how meticulous he was on the appearance of his work truck and where he had travelled to. A few years back, he mentioned that he bought a new truck and was quite proud of that.

    I hadn’t see him for a little bit and then he walked into the Woodbridge Legion and it was great seeing him. Brian and I will definately miss him, he was a great person to talk to and also just to listen to him.

    We will miss Bill.

    To the Johnson family, sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with Bill and his son at one time, and my mother worked for Bill’s father in Maple. We would talk from time to time on the main street in Bolton.
