At home he was a loud bugger that had to deal with 7 girls and 1 boy but dam he was a good Dad
He was a man you could talk about anything with and he’d always have a huge bear hug for you when you needed one..a good friend to me and all my mates…
And then have a beer with you and later be laughing hard till you had tears rolling down your face
I love you miss you DAD and think of you everyday xxx

CREMATION CEREMONY FOR RETIRED CHIEF INSPECTOR WILLIAM ‘BILL’ LEONARD ESPIE. Born 250635 – 220911

SERVICE AT THE SOUTH CHAPEL, ROOKWOOD CREMATORIUM, ROOKWOOD, 10.30AM.

POLICE FUNERAL.

I WORKED WITH BILL AT CABRAMATTA / FAIRFIELD / 34 DIVISION POLICE AROUND THE 1977 ERA.

RETIRED POLICE COMMISSIONER KEN MORONEY GIVING THE EULOGY.

Espie, known then as Buckshot by the boys, went to school in Port Adelaide and showed himself to be an outstanding tennis player, facing at one time Lew Hoad and Ken Rosewall.
