    It was my privilege to spend many hours with Bill, together enjoying the placing on record of a biographical sketch of his long and adventurous life, both in Europe and Australia. Despite enduring many vicissitudes, especially during WWII, he remained cheerfully inspirational and a perfect gentleman. A huge life, well lived. Condolences to all who knew and loved him.

    I alway regarded Bill Zonnenbergs as one of the best people I ever knew and even though he never knew it, he influenced me in my own journey through life.

    I will always remember him as a kind and gentle person who above all, loved his family and was always gracious no matter with whom he came into contact with.

    With my deepest condolences.
