To the family. I worked with Wick at Parts for Trucks (Scotia Equipment when he started) from 1980 until when he retired. Wick's big smile on the web site photo kind of says it all; he was always easy going, upbeat and never, as I can recall, complained. Like many technicians of his generation, Wick may not have been the most polished guy, but he worked hard and with me, was always honest and someone I could count on. I am pleased to know Willard had many good years after his retirement. I am sorry that travel commitments do not allow me to attend the funeral on Saturday. Wick is a fellow you remember and my condolences to you all. Paul Raymond
