    Just found a bunch of old hard drives in the attic and were looking through their contents.

    Found a few old emails from Bill when I looked him up on friendsreunited,
    (I was at school with him from 1966)

    I visited him about ten years ago, (Got very drunk and probably disgraced myself) but remembered that Bill was one of the most genuine people I recall from my school days.

    So I thought I’d write again.

    Did a google to try to find his address and was upset to find he is no longer with us.

    “Remember the days of the old school yard…We used to laugh a lot…”

    Sad loss.

    The king is gone
    but he's not forgotten
    This is the story
    of a Johnny Rotten
    It's better to burn out
    than it is to rust
    The king is gone
    but he's not forgotten.

    I'll always remember Bill as being a very friendly, articulate, caring and above all like-able character. His stamp on all at Lydgate is plain to see and I'm sure he's looking over all that knew him.
    It was a privilege to have known Bill. And to have played music with him from time to time.
    Rest easy Bill

    Happy days all that time ago at Furzedown in London. Good laughs, bright ideas, and a good friendship. So pleased that Bill touched so many livesin such a positive way. Lost touch with Bill and Sandy until about a year back when we spoke at length again and laughed as we had done some 40 years earlier. Sleep well.

    I first met Mr.Goler when I went to Lydgate School 10 years ago. He was a very polite man, and a great head teacher. He always stuck up for me and I miss him very much. I was very sad when I heard that he had died. Although I hadn't seen him for ages my mum saw him from time to time when she went to Deighton and he always asked her about me. Such a lovely man, such a great loss.

    My name is Annabel Coleman I missing you lots even though I have not seen you in a while the last time was on rainy day in Huddersfield and you took time to talk to me and my mum. I remember the songs you sang to me at school and how we laughed a lot about things and the little joke we shared about 'Mario Brothers' it was a nick name I had for two of the teachers in my class and you thought it was so funny but it was our little joke. You always will be in my mind and I am glad I came today even though I felt sad and I cried but I know where ever you are you will look down on me and all the other special people you cared about. Keep smiling and playing your guitar and sing for me like you did when I was at school. Lots of love to you and your family especially your wife Sandy and your two boys Annabel Coleman aged 25

    I would like to add a tribute to this man who I met through my daughter attending Lydgate School Annabel is now 25 and left the school when she was 17 Bill made it possible for her tostay an extra year. I have bumped into Bill in Huddersfield a few times and we have talked and talked and I always promised to come along when he was playing in the bandm, but sadly that never happened. We came along today to the celebration of his life today at the Holmfirth Picture Drome we did not stay too long as Annabel was upset and my grandaughter and her friend did not really understand what it was all about (they wanted to dance). But I am glad I came along and so is Annabel we will always hold fond memories of a great bloke who was different who I could have disagreements with and he would listen and help but I always left the meetings with a smile on my face and laughing. He accepted and respected my wishes as a parent and supported me even though he did not always agree as I said to one of the teachers who taught my daughter *its sad for the people he has left behind and my thoughts go to his wife Sandy and her family but Bill Goler lived life to full and sadly he went too soon but to me he made his mark and he did live life to the full.

    I met Bill during a 5 day training event which was designed to give delegates an insight into why they behaved as they did and how they could change their behaviour to create improvements. I wondered why Bill was there as he seemed so relaxed with who he was, what his values were about education and life and no matter who he was with there was no watering down of what he believed. He quietly gave me the courage to hold firm to what I believed was right in education and in life. I wish I'd told him of the influence he'd had on me but it is heartwarming to read and to hear that the Bill effect has empowered so many people who have met, worked and had the honour to know him.
