Bill and I met in 1967 when we were each traveling sales reps. As our careers progressed we always stayed in touch and enjoyed swopping stories of life on the road. I will always remember him as a true friend and a great jokester. His love of family was always a priority. I am honored to have known him and he will be greatly missed.

I have known Bill for several years. I was very sad to hear of his passing. I'm going to miss seeing him coming thru the side entrance of Don Ramon's. We had Arkansas in common since we both are from there. We would often have conversations about home and the Razorbacks. Bill loved talking about his family, his children and grandchildren. He was very proud of his children and grand kids. He didn't tell me a lot of his corny jokes because he knew I didn't really get them, lol.
Bill rest in peace, you truly will be missed!
This picture I took on his birthday this past February.

So sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. He always made me smile with his corny jokes and our conversations. I have know him for years because we would frequent the same restaurants on 1960. He frequently spoke about his family and I know the love that he felt for you all. Rest In Peace beautiful friend and may God’s loving arms embrace and comfort those he left behind.
