Condolence & Memory Journal

Im not sure why this popped up today but Im glad it did. Bill was one of the most gentle souls. I worked with him at CVMC and then years later at BCBSVT. He taught me so much about life, how to remain calm when things are crazy around you and putting things in perspective! His love for his Rosalee and his family was evident. Rest easy Bill!

So sad to hear about Bill's passing. He was the greatest guy and the best Doctor ever. He helped my son, Barrett, learn how to tie flies. He was always willing to help and listen to all my families problems. He will be greatly missed by his friends and family. I send my condolences to all of you. Fondly, Jean Peterson. (especially Rosalie and Kathy!)

I worked with Bill at BCBSVT- what a lovely man with such a kind spirit. I learned so many lessons from him. together we started the BC Choraleers singing at the local nursing homes at the Holidays- the group still gathers today! My deepest sympathies to Rosalee and your family and friends. RIP Bill

Dr. Allard was my doctor from about 1970 until he retired and went to BCBS. I remember him fondly. He is missed. May the wind lift your wings in joy.

Mr. Allard, as I knew him, was my friend Sue's dad, across the steeet on center street in Montpelier. I was always in awe of their family and how talented they all were. I grew up with Sue, Matt, and Marc primarily, I remember playing school in the basement and I usually tried to hang around for dinner on many occasions, because Bill and Rosalie were amazing cooks. I don't think it's a coincidence also, that I'm an avid fly fisher and very into music and art as well. I loved being around such a vibrant family. Sue and I played French horn starting in 4th grade. Thanks for great memories. You are missed by many. RIP.

Wait....I don't miss that aoooga horn you used to blast when pulling into your driveway.

My condolences to Rosalie and family. What a great, great man! I worked with Bill at BCBSVT who modeled the word compassion. Always thoughtful but had a wonderful sense of humor. My husband and I enjoyed his visit to Maine, sharing stories and plans. He will be missed by so many!

Rosalle and family. Very sorry for your loss. Doc treated me a number of time. One time when doing his rounds he noticed me in bed and came in to say hi. Patted me on my foot and noticed the cringe on my face. I had come in early with a fractured ankle. We both had a good laugh and chatted for a while.
