Our condolences go out to all of Bill's family. He will be greatly missed by the guys at the Town of Essex Public Works. Bill worked for us as a temporary employee for over 7 years plowing sidewalks and doing summer construction projects. He always came to work with a good attitude and helped make this a great place to work and have some fun. Remember all the good times Bill brought to us. Town of Essex Public Works

Sharon, Shelly, Bill and the Simmons family. I was very sad to hear of this loss of Bill. I remember spending many a weekend with you and Bill. I can hear his great laugh and his great wit. We grow older and loose touch. Thou Bill may be gone from our sight, he will never leave our hearts. Sharing in your sorrow. With love and friendship. Tom & Joyce Hayden
