    My deepest condolences to all of the family. I will forever have fond memories of the years I hung out with the Bilton’s and their extended family. I am also so grateful of all of the Real Estate knowledge Bill shared with me during my first years as a Realtor……Loved that guy!

    Bill and family.
    Sorry for the loss of your Dad. I was a friend of your Mom. Saw her often at Bingo.
    I have been unable to go to the casino for a while and won’t be there for another while.
    I probably will not be able to go to the funeral so would like to express my condolences to
    You and your family..

    Spent a lot of time with Bev and Bill way back in the early 60’s. Have some great memories of them. Hope to see Shelley and Suzanne in April. Sorry to have never met Bill Jr. My thoughts are with you all.

    RIP Billy.
    One of this earth’s real ‘good guys”.
    Full of enthusiasm for everything he ever tackled.
    Brick walls of resistance were simply opportunities to build doorways.
    Filled with integrity as he navigated the development and construction worlds.
    Helped countless young people in the worlds of home building and real estate.
    A constant supporter of the North Shore.
    Responsible for many places in Kamloops of which people are proud, including buildings, golf courses, subdivisions.
    Always willing to take on city hall, and usually win because he was right to begin with.
    A great booster of free enterprise at the provincial level, and on a purely personal note someone I relied on many times for all kinds of great advice.
    My most sincere condolences to Shelley and Suzanne and Bill Jr.

    You never know how much you miss someone until you go to where they usually are and you find out theyare no longer with us. I remember so long as a substitute teacher at Nor Kam high school. Loved him….. he was cool lol. Then watching him work his magic in the real estate world and finally with his dream development at the Dunes. I loved bantering and golfing with bill and others at the Dunes!! I will miss his presence there….. my prayers to the family.

    I’m sorry to hear the news. Bill was an amazing person. He blazed a trail everywhere he went and always left something good behind for those who followed. He completed some great projects, including the subdivision and golf course at Rivershore, the development of Bachelor Hills, and many other projects in Kamloops to name a few. Along the way, there were tough times, but they didn’t stop you. You kept things moving. I knew you were struggling, but I did not know of your passing until recently. Rest in peace, Bill. We shall always miss you.
