    As a young man I spent several years working for my Father and Bill in their construction company. They provided me with multiple trade skills that have benefitted me over many years. Bill was a proud and accomplished builder and I appreciated his tutelage. He will be missed. We offer our sincerest condolences to the entire family. Daryl and Marjorie Seckman
