|Let the memory of William be with us forever|
"Hi Bonnie and Don,
I am so sorry to hear this. My heart goes out to you and your family. I wish you strength and courage in a difficult time.
"Dearest Bonnie, Don and family:
Words cannot express our deepest sympathy in your loss of Bill. We send you hugs, love and peace of God which transcends all understanding.
Love, Lita and Ariel"
"Dearest Bonnie and Don and Brown family,
Elvio and I want you to know that we are thinking of you in your time of sorrow. We know how difficult it is to lose someone you love so much. Terry, you did a great job in your tribute to your brother! We will see you on Sunday.
With all our love,
Ceci and Elvio"
"I am so very sorry for your loss. You are a lovely lady, Bonnie. I am sure Billy was an amazing man. His memory will live on. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Much love and many hugs. I am always here if you need me.
Love, Jeannie Garr Roddy"
"Dearest Bonnie, Don & Family,
I cannot even imagine the pain of losing a child, at any age. My heart aches for you. I had the pleasure of spending time with Billy at a family gathering and he was a very memorable person...and I also remember feeling the love for each other in your family. Not on this plane any longer, but nonetheless, always present in spirit and in our hearts."
"Technically Bill was my step brother. Our parents married when I was only 3 years old, so he was my brother. To me, he was a wonderful man. He protected me. He was always very tender to me. He treated me as all little sisters should be treated. I will love him forever and miss him even more. I am grateful for all of the wonderful memories I have with him and with all of my family."
"May the precious, sweet aroma of this little flower give Billy peace and help to ease his way back to see you as soon as he can. He is happy and he is done with this earthen life so he has shown you his tapestry of a life perfectly done. Now on to new things with no pain. He will light the way and wait for you to see him once more."
My mother always said when she was alive that there can be no greater sorrow than loosing a child. My mother lost a son when he was 2 12 month old and a daughter at 2 1/2 years of age.
Please accept my condolences for the loss of your son Bill.
"Dearest Bonnie, Don & Family,
Thank you for posting this tribute to your dear son, Bill. We've had our losses haven't we? They are never easy especially the loss of a son. It's just not the way things are suppose to work out, parents are not suppose to have to loose a child. I'm so sorry for your loss. May the blessings of family, friends and memories help you through this time."
"Bonnie and Don, and Family,
I am so deeply sorry to hear about your son. It must be very hard to lose a child, no matter what age we all are. Loving speed, as I read Bill did, I am sure he's zipping around somewhere, and very much enjoying the new adventure!
It's those of us that are left behind that so miss the physical presence of the one we love. My heart goes out to you, and your family.
May your faith comfort you in this time of sadness, and may the love of your son fill you with warm and happy memories. He is with you still...
With Much Love, Susan"
"Dearest Bonnie, Don and Family,
We're sending you our deepest sympathies and we are so sorry for your loss. We know your strong faith will help you, but we also hope your cherished memories of the times spent together will help ease your pain.
With love to you always,
Pauline and Richard"
"Dear Bonnie and Don,
What a terrifble loss. It sounds like Bill lived a full life in the time he was with us.
May you feel blessings and love surround you duing this sad time.
"Dear Bonnie and family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. Loss is never easy, please find comfort in knowing that "Billy" lived his life to the fullest on his terms. When it's all said and done, that's what we all strive for. Quite an accomplishment!
"Dear Bonnie and Don and family
I am so sorry to hear of your loss and my thoughts will be with you this coming Sunday at his life celebration.
"Dear Bonnie and Brown family,
I am sorry for your loss.
It sounds like Bill died the way he lived, on his own terms. We should all be so blessed to live a life of our own design.
"William "Bill" Scot Brown left this life, far too soon, for journeys unknown. On the morning of November 5th, 2015, Bill lost his battle with cancer. He was 58. Legend has it that this was the first and only fight Bill ever lost! He lived a very "colorful" life...
Bill was born in Glendale, CA on April 8th, 1957, the first child of Bonnie (Simons) and Bud Brown. He lived in Eagle Rock, South Pasadena, Glendale, Tujunga, Lake L.A., but most prominently in Santa Clarita, where he attended Sierra Vista Jr High, and Canyon High School (class of 1975).
Bill enjoyed fast cars, "fast" women, partying, rock n roll, inventing and tinkering. He loved collecting and playing guitars- accumulating over 15 electric and acoustic models that he proudly displayed on his walls.
Bill was a master electrician, starting out as a helper for his dad, in the family business Budd Electric, while still in high school. Not only was he one of the best in the business, he was also the fastest (Bill liked doing EVERYTHING fast!).
Bill never married, but enjoyed the opposite sex! He never had children (that any one knows of, at least!), but treated his neice and nephews as his own, and loved them dearly. He was a great uncle- which he literally became earlier this year, with the birth of his great-neice!
Bill was preceded in transition by his father Wallace "Bud" Brown and uncle Dick Panion. He is deeply missed, and loved eternally, by his parents Bonnie and Don Simons, brother Terry (and Tia), sisters Lora and Arleen, nephews Terry II, Ted, and Tim, neice Tara (and Nick), great-neice Kori-Lynn, and other nieces, nephews and cousins.
A Celebration of Life will be on Sunday, December 6th, at 2:00 PM, at the Center for Spiritual Living- Glendale, 2001 Cañada Blvd, Glendale Ca 91208 (corner of Hillside and Cañada Blvd)."
