Bill lived across the street from us in Woodfield Park and was one of the nicest and friendliest people I have ever met. He was always happy to say hello and chat, and it seemed like he was always helping someone in the neighborhood with something. A truly kindhearted soul and giving person that will be missed greatly in our subdivision. My condolences to his family and close friends.

Bill was a dealer trade driver for me. Whenever I needed him he was always ready to go. He was such a sweet man and absolutely obsessed with his two grandsons. Every time I saw him he showed me a new picture of them on his phone background. So very sorry to hear for your all's loss. You all will be in my thoughts and Bill will be very missed by us at Airport Honda.
