Dr. Amy and family,

My deepest condolence on Bill's passing.  I worked with him off and on over my 20 years dealing with Synnex.  He was a great joy to work with and we were able to share many family stories and how much he enjoyed and was proud of you and his family.  His dry sense of humor kept me on my toes talking with him.  We always had a good laugh.  He was so positive till the very end.  I considered him a very good friend and he will be sorely missed.  You're in my thoughts and prayers as you go through these troubled waters.  May God's blessing be with you and your family.

Our deepest condolences to Amy and their children, Bill, Janeen, Denise, her family, and Gayle and her family on this tragic loss.

We were so blessed to have had Bill as our nephew. We knew Bill to be a loyal, hardworking husband, father, son and brother. While he may be physically gone, his spirit, courage and loving heart will be with all of us, forever.

We see Bill every time we sit at our desk, as he was a member of our wedding party, many, many years ago. Clothed in a white jacket, a little 5 year old ring bearer named Billy (at that time), smiles at us every single day. God bless you and keep you Bill.. We will keep you in our hearts with much love.

Gerri and I were so fortunate to call Billy our friend.  He added so much to our time at Carolina; as a fraternity brother, a teammate on the field and court, a workmate at the famed Library Club on Rosewood and a groomsman at our wedding.  As so many have offered, Billy was so kind and had the best spirit, regardless of circumstances.  I know he will be greatly missed and we pray that the family will find peace and comfort knowing that his struggles are finally behind him.  We give thanks to God for the life of Billy Cantillion.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dr. Amy   I did not realize Bill was your husband. I've known him for almost 50 years when his parents moved to Merrifield Park. In fact my wife and I were in a bowling league with Bill's parents, Janet and Bill. Played golf with them as well. May he rest in peace.  Thanks for all you did for me.
Sincerely
Len Byrne

Jill and I just want to offer condolences to the Family and especially our neighbor and my former GE boss, Bill Jr. We cannot imagine how hard it is to bury a child no matter how old they are. But there will be fond memories forever.
Bless you all. Jill and Mike Broder

Although I haven't seen Bill in a long time, I will always remember his kindness and his honesty.  I pray for Amy and their young children. Bill will live on through his children who I hope inherited his good nature and will inspire others like Bill inspired us and made us laugh.

I worked with Bill at Communications Equipment Company (CEC) in the late 80s and early 90s.  He was a respected leader in that company and always seem to have a smile on his face.  I remember him fondly as someone who performed his job with excellence, had fun, and always treated me with kindness and friendship.  I pray God will strengthen and comfort all his family and friends during this sad time.

Bill Cantillion’s Heart was as good as they come. Friends since the ninth grade, Bill was truly one of the kindest souls I have ever met. Loved everyone he met and they loved him. I cherished our friendship and relationship and I am a better person due to Bill’s presence in my life. He was an additional brother to me and an additional son to my parents. My sister and brother loved him as part of our family as well. Bill was with my wife, Stefi, and I on our first date. We would always do things together whether it was double dating or just the three of us hanging out. Love Bill Cantillion’s Family. Wonderful memories of his late Mom as well as that of his special Father. Wonderful Sisters in Janeen, Denise, and Gayle. Amy, his wife, was and always will be the significant other to him. Bill loved Amy with all of his heart and loved his Family. Connor, Cadance, Will, and Emma, you were and always will be blessed with a Father that cared for and loved you all so much. Bill, I love you and looking forward to the day we see each other again. May your memory be eternal.

It was nice to see Bill a few years ago with his son (At Publix) who looked just like him! I have some wonderful memories of Bill when I worked for him years ago. My prayers go out to the entire Cantillion family at this sad time. When a person becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. May the memories of Bill live in your family’s hearts forever.

This makes me remember that “Billy’s” mom Janet and our friend Charlotte along with myself were all expecting at the same time. Janet and Charlotte had baby boys...and Bill was the beloved one and only son In the Cantillion family surrounded by three loving sisters. My baby was a girl and it is so hard to believe these babies have been such joys throughout our lives. I just know that Bill’s mom Janet has received him with loving arms.
