Not only was Bill my Manager with State Farm Insurance, he was my friend. In fact, he was more of a friend with his agents than a Manager. My family has been blessed by his friendship more than most will ever realize. Bill, my friend, you will be missed but never forgotten. May the Lord Bless you and your family now and always. Peace to you all.

I so enjoyed knowing Bill; he lent humor and insight to his work and compassion and kindness to his friends. I respected him greatly as one of the "old school" for State Farm; he carved a path for others to follow. Your family is in my prayers and I am so sorry for your loss.
