The following was lovingly composed by Bill’s wife:
Bill Gow was a loving , caring man. He was a wonderful husband too. We were together since 2001 and married in 2009, Bill enjoyed camping, hiking and fishing and gardening going to concerts and listening to some good old rock and roll especially the Rolling Stones and J Giles Band. His occupation of a general contractor, mostly roofing. He is survived by his wife Laura Stilinovich- Gow and his 2 sons Jeff and Ryan Gow married to Heather He also has a Brother Robert Gow Jr married to Carole (nee) Anthony and Cyndee Jones (nee)Gow married to Dave. He also has 2 grandchildren Ethan and Mason. Bill was a loving man, smart and a friend to everyone he met. Bill would help anyone he could by fixing things, using his knowledge to fix things or rebuild them to make it work again. He enjoyed working with his hands as in models, and making birdhouses, gardening or helping others to doctor appointments or fixing broken things for others. I learned alot from him, when we first started seeing each other, it was a work date, I learned how to do siding , roofing and capping of windows but had a date at the same time. He was my best friend and I will miss him so much. He helped out my Mother, Aunts, Sisters, Niece, and Nephews when he could if they needed help with anything. He was so smart. We enjoyed camping and going for hikes at the Pennypack trail and he loved his Eagles. We attended Willow Grove Presbyterian Church until they closed, he was re- baptized and sang in the church choir and served communion. When the church closed, we attended Neshaminy Warwick Presbyterian, he enjoyed their sermons and music. Bill always listened to you and would be a friend with a caring heart and help you anyway he could. He was a great man and loving Husband and my soul mate. I waited for a while to find the right man, and little did I know he grew up on the same street my Nana lived on in Abington . He was one of the boys that rode their bikes down her street and teased me and my cousins when I was about 8 years old. He enjoyed Bagpipes and going to the Celtic fest. He was there for me and others in a lot of ways, when my Mother Beverly Stilinovich was in her final days he was by her side while I was at work. Fixed and up little things and kept her garden. When my Aunts were in need, Dottie and Debbie,he would take them to doctors appointments and help with the household chores He played Santa one year for my great -Nieces who lost their Mom, gave them all magic Bears to hold. We had a dear older friend Ella, he would take her and her friends to the Casino and fix little things around her house and listen to her stories. Bill was a great man, smart kind, loyal, honest and caring with a big heart. Always tried to make people laugh, even towards the end of his days with the nurses in the hospital. I will miss him soo much Lovey He was my BEST FRIEND and the TRUE LOVE OF MY LIFE. He taught me alot and I am glad he is with God now, out of pain, and seeing the people in life that loved him and have passed on. God’s speed Baby!!! I did give you a beer today, you are home as well a lock of my hair so you can always have it with you.
