Dear Peg, Colleen and Kathleen, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family. We have so many fond memories of our good times together at Egrets Walk. Bill was a fun person to be around, and was always helping me with projects, always with a smile and some good natured ribbing. We will miss Bill, our dear friend and cherish the many good times we had together. With Love, Mark & Robin Vanderlinden

His sense of humor and his smile made him a light in my life when it was otherwise dark. I may not have had a chance to spend a lot of time with him, but when I did see him it always felt like everything would be okay—my anxiety evaporated. He was a gift—and I expect that is true for everyone who knew him.

I was one "of the ladies" that Mr. Walsh always made feel special when he came into Old Mill Nurseries. I am Laura's sister who started here a couple of years ago and was blessed to get to know Bill a little. Without even saying a word, you can tell that he was the kindest person who had the ability to make you feel special. My memories of him was how much he loved his wife and his family. God bless him...

Stacey Dixon Backman- Daughter of Lance & Maureen Dixon Egrets Walk left a message on January 21, 2023:
I am so sorry!! Bill always had a smile on his face and went out of his way to help everyone at Pelican Marsh(Egrets Walk). When my father passed away in 2020(Lance E Dixon) Bill went out of his way to make sure my mom (Maureen McDermott Dixon) and my family were okay; so grateful! That was the type of neighbor/friend he was; always willing to help anyone with a big endearing smile. He will truly be missed at Egrets Walk! My thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family!

To The Walsh Family please except my condolences on the passing of Bill. We were Cust. Engineers in the Bronx in the 70's. I always remember Bill for the constant smile on his face, his quick sense of humor and his ability to make people laugh. He will be missed, but I can picture him now reuniting with Family and Deceased members of Local 891, with that huge smile of his and a comment funny and at times ribald! Rest in Peace Bill.
