    Sad news.

    MrE has “posted” in the “Systems Section” that Bill passed away on the 14/12/2020.

    Rest in peace dear Bill.

    Very sad news indeed.. A forum Legend has gone to a better place
    Bill was the life blood of the system section of this forum for a long time and will be missed greatly
    Some good memories that I won’t forget were the times that myself and MrE use to post a lot of nonsense and a bit of a mickey take towards Bill who would take it all in the good spirit and the harmless fun that it was.
    Very humble guy who was joint poster of the year in 2011
    Rest in peace Bill… :heart:

    Aaaaw man, this is sad news.

    Always enjoyed many a chat with him, and he was the stalwart of Systems who took time to show an interest when I gave the systems a go. A very likeable guy.

    I don’t have to say he’ll be missed, as he was already missed on here.

    RIP Bill

    That is dreadfully sad news Matron. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
    I do remember coming up against his wicked sense of humour several times especially in Nathan’s TRF Poem of the year contest. He could certainly spin a yarn.
    RIP Billion

    Apologies to Billion in my post above I think I confused him with Gamble on the Poetry Thread Nathan will put me straight on that it was a while back.
    RIP Billion :rose:

    Easy mistake to make Jac.
    Bill rarely venture far from the system section of the forum where he was a specialist

    Billion showed his moodiness and frustration in interesting ways which made him a draw in my eyes. He was a unique poster and had a big following mainly because of his angles on life and his perceptions. He was mainly himself. I am sorry to hear of his passing and will miss him. If I was mistaken for him I consider it an honour.

    Bill was one of the greats
    an irreplaceable poster
    with his down to earthiness
    life insights
    and quirky off the wall humour
    We shall all miss.

    Ward Seven will not recover.
