Copyright: The Hawksford family: - Bill died on May 11th 2007, his stories will live on.
My contact with Bill started in 2003, Bill lived in New York having emigrated to USA in 1967, he was a huge supporter of this website and visited it every day. He was a very sick man for years but this did not effect his special brand of humour, we emailed each other most days and his wit was something to be believed, his emails became something unique every day to be enjoyed.
I never met him in person but feel I knew him well, I still miss him and will never forget Driver Bill, in life you come across people who make a big impression on you, Bill was one of those people. His stories will live on !.
