Default Bill Williamson

Has anyone had recent contact with Bill? His last activity was November 2019.
I personally miss his stories and unique sense of humour. Some people are conspicuous by their absence! Here is hoping he is healthy and happy!

I believe from another site he's in a Nursing Home. He hasn't posted there in a while either.

Thank you Paul I am truly sorry to hear that news. Bill was indeed an asset to the hobby and the group. He instilled a sense of humour and comradery in our hobby. I truly hope he is alert and focused enough to still have an interest in Model A Fords and knows he was truly appreciated by a large number of Model A enthusiasts. He is in my prayers !

A good idea Keith. He loves funnies and if he is able to tune in he will get some smiles and chuckles! Let’s add a bit of humour to his life like he did ours!

I hope he gets to see Buster now and then. I'm sure that would cheer him up no end. (Buster too)

I didn't realise Buster had gone. Losing one's dog is nearly as bad as it gets.
BTW, Vermin is in Australia now, I believe. Bill asked me by PM what I thought about selling overseas, that's how I know.
BTW, if someone does get a message to him, please let him know that we are thinking of him and miss him.

And if he's not connected with a computer, maybe we can get an address and send him stuff by snail mail. He was also good about sending PM's with comments after we would post at times.
He is missed.

Bill is still in assisted living facility, has a computer with i/net access but seems to have lost interest and is chasing young nurses. There is a thread going on the "other" site.

Even though we never heard from him I am sure that the message was relayed to him that “ we as a group care “!

I'm not sure what some find "better" about the barn compared to VFF. The format is similar with a few minor improvements and there are also a few minor features here that are better. The membership is largely the same people on both sites. As far as i can see calling one "better" than the other is like saying that a GMC truck is "better" than a Chevy truck (or vice versa).

Wouldn't know, never been able to log on. But one thing I think Ford Barn has all over VFF is that people that don't "belong" can read the forums. VFF blurs everything out.

There are three Model A sites. I find it interesting when you see the answers on each site when a person asks the same question three times. Kind of like doctor shopping to get the answer you want.

I don;t think it's a matter of looking for the "answer than they want" but, rather, the more information/opinons the better. Otherwise, every post should only require the first response then be locked as no further information/opinions required.

This is Cindy Williamson, Bill Williamson's daughter, here to sadly inform you that my father passed away on November 2, 2020.

Bill had been moved to a board and care home in July 2019 and Buster T, the dog had to be put down due to very old age.

Dad really enjoyed being on the Ford Barn talking about cars and making friends.

Sadly, Cindy Williamson

Sorry to hear that Bill passed away.
Altho I never met Bill he used to PM me about the times he spent in the South Bay Area and the Portafino Inn here in Redondo Beach Harbor. I truly miss our 'side bar' conversations.

Hi Cindy. I am very sorry to hear your dad has passed away. Ford Barn was never the same once he quit posting. He had a great sense of humour and an in-depth knowledge of Model A’s. He was admired and respected for both. My sincere condolences to his family and loved ones. May his soul Rest In Peace! God Bless, Wayne.

Every time I log in to FB I think about Bill. His posts were my first impression of the site when I first joined. He was a positive influence here, and we all miss him. RIP Bill Williamson.

Thanks Cindy, I never ever heard him referred to as Billy. I also never saw a photograph of him at that young age. Thanks , Wayne

Cindy, thank you for posting that. He was a distinguished good-looking younger man! Do you have a more recent picture of him in his eighties you could post?. I recall one where he was speeding along on his electric scooter.
Did he have a beard then? Any pics of Buster T we could see?
I would love to have met him when we came over for MAFCA rallies, but never managed to get to Fresno.
As ever, Bills input and humour is missed.

Cindy, Iím usually quiet on this forum but I wanted to say that I admired and enjoyed your dad tremendously. He was a great asset to the forum and will be missed!
