William loved to travel and could always be counted on to be an extra driver for one of the many spontaneous trips that his family would take him on. He told his sister Margaret that he wanted them to make a return trip to Crazy Horse in South Dakota.
His favorite band was Iron Maiden. He was happy that he got to see them live in concert in Winnipeg.
Another one of William's other favorite things to do was gamble. He liked going to Club Regent and McPhillips Street Station in Winnipeg where you could find him playing Blackjack at one of the tables or he had favorite VLT machines that he would only play at because he used to say he knew when they paid out.
