He had jars of gold dust from panning and prospecting for gold in the area which he would show his nephews when they visited. We had to leave the room while he took the jars from their hiding place.
He was a fussy person and would always be cleaning up any crumbs which may have been dropped. Niel Ross recalls that if he went for a cuppa with Bill he would be cleaning up any crumbs while he was still there.
