Basil (Bill) Apostolides –
All around fun guy
Bill sets his own hours and when he’s here he is always up to something. He’s mostly retired now, spending time lounging in his yard or in his garden. He helped out in shipping, but was also the delivery driver and cleaner. Cardboard boxes are his favourite though, give him a pile of old boxes and he’ll have them cut up and in the recycling in no time. We hope he is enjoying official retirement!
