The celebration of Bill's life will be on Friday, June 29 starting at 5:30 p.m.

Bunker Hills Regional Park
550 Bunker Lake Blvd. NW
Andover, MN 55304
Pavilion #3 (the yellow circle on the map)
Restrooms and a playground are close to the area. 
There is adequate parking near the pavilion. 

Entry into the park is $6 per vehicle.
Potluck meal - hot dogs, sloppy joes and bottled water will be provided along with paper plates, etc. Please bring something to share and a beverage if you would like something other than water. No alcoholic beverages.
Casual dress (i.e. as per what Bill would have liked:  t-shirts/shorts & jeans - please, no tank tops or immodest clothing)

There will be some time where we will share memories if you care to do so. Or, if you would like to write something out, you can do that and bring it along, or write it out there as materials will be provided. If you have photos that would be appreciated, too. We thought it would be nice to put together a booklet for his grandchildren, both present and those to come in the future.

If you have any questions you can call Laurie at 763-434-8436 or 612-384-4697 or email at lauriejcrist@gmail.com. We have been asked for our mailing address, too, so that is: 20621 Sleepy Hollow Drive NW, Cedar, MN 55011.

  • Dick Pugh : I worked with Bill on the B-25 at Oshkosh and here in Blaine. I enjoyed the time spent with him and appreciated his mechanical knowledge. He and I were working in my shop and he left his apron and gloves. I spent the last year looking forward to his next visit. If his family would care for the return of those items, please contact me. He leaves a hole with his passing. Dick Pugh
