I worked at Publix with Bill in the 80’s. He was also friends with my late brother, Bill, who also was a Publix vet. We had recently reconnected on social media and shared some fun memories. I’m so sorry that he has passed. It will definitely leave a void here on earth as he was certainly a kind-hearted man. He will be missed!

Very sad to hear of Bills passing. He was one of the first friends I made when I moved to Fl in 1979.

I will miss his goofy ass!

Bull and I went to Fletcher High School. I was a year ahead and graduated in 1979. Him and I worked at Publix together for a short while. We list contact over the years but was able to reconnect on social media. We talked about the old days and what fun we had. My heart was broken when I saw he had died. He will be missed. RIP my friend

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family in this time.
I had just meet Bill in the past couple of months and he had already established relationships here at store 686. Many associates were shocked to her of his passing. Bill was dedicated to the team and was a very positive person. If you need anything from us in this time please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
