Sadly my Step-Dad William "Bill" Atkinson passed away after a fight with Leukaemia on Tuesday the 31st of May. He was 62.
Bill was a former season ticket holder in the Top Balcony and in more recent years had sat in the Lower Gwladys whenever he went to Goodison.
Our last game together was the 2-1 win over Fulham in March. Myself, Shane, John, & Steve had travelled down from Scarborough for the match and were fortunate enough to get several good hours in at the Spellow first.
Whilst I wish it wasn't his last game, at least he went out with a win. I will always be grateful for our shared loved of Everton, he took me to my first game and we shared many great memories watching the mighty Blues down the years.
I'll keep this brief as he wasn't one for much fuss, suffice to say I was proud to know him and I know how he was proud to be a blue. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him and though he is gone, he will never be forgotten. Martin Plant
