William Harold Willer is my father! I know little about my father. I do know most people out side the family called him Bill. He was born on Oct. 1st, 1916 in Watford Ontario. He died in New York State on Nov 7th, 1958. I knew that he was a telegrapher in the Royal Canadian Navy in WWII. He was married to Muriel Edith Alice Westgate. The family lived in Windsor during the War. I do have some pre-war pictures of him.
I was 10 when he died. I remember very little. Any information you can give me would be very much appreciated.

P.S. I can't believe my good fortune at coming across this site. I'm sure some of you know more about my dad, Harold Willer, than I do. I would be grateful to hear anything about him. It's hard to believe that he was a telegrapher. It didn't rub off on me. I remember the haircuts though. The clippers really pulled.
