Bill was a former Member of the House of Assembly, Speaker of the East Sepik Provincial Government and a well-regarded entrepreneur in the Sepik region.
“There was a service in Wewak and Bill was then taken to Korogopa for burial amongst his ancestors,” reports Peter Johnson.
There will be many with memories of Bill and stories to tell. A more detailed tribute will be published in the near future.
