Sad loss. An old central mate and a friend from Nambucca when he was residing there. RIP Billy.
Will be unable to make the funeral but no doubt it will be a good send off.

Bruce "BUCK" Eldersays:

Bill was my best mate.
I first met Bill when we were both cops stationed at The Rocks police station, Sydney. I had just been transferred from Woy Woy and going through some family issues. Bill took me in and we both gelled as we were also Vietnam vets. We instantly became good mates. I was deeply saddened when I received the news of his passing. In the future I intend to visit his grave and give my respects. All my condolences to Sue and family. Bill will be deeply missed by me. See you in the after life my warrior friend. LEST WE FORGET.

Sad to hear this news. I knew Bill thru the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s ( great time in all our lives) he was a best mate of Mike (Mick) Stephens from Sydney, Newcastle, Coffs Harbour/Nambucca – Mike Stephens ( died 2008 in Lismore).
I’m sure they will have a lot to catch up on.
Take it easy. RIP Billy Babbs.
Love Joanne xxx

Dearest Billy

Once met never forgotten.
It was 17 years ago David introduced me to his mate. Always a thorough gentleman and always with a side splitting line. We are so heartbroken you have gone but you will live on in all the stories David will be reminiscing over a drink or two in your honour.
Rest in peace dear friend
