Bill was my thrivent representative forever. He was always ready to answer every question. I always felt safe knowing he was there. I will miss him.

Bill was special. I met him when I started attending St Michael’s and all Angels Lutheran Church. Before long I was teaching Sunday School and became an active member of the church. Through the years we did many activities together. When I remarried I asked Bill to sing at my wedding. He had a beautiful voice. Before the service I asked him to sing a Billy Joel song. He wasn’t sure if he was up to “pop” music but as always, he was great. When I moved away from Pittsburgh I would stop in his office and it was great when I could have lunch with both Sharon and Bill. Rest In Peace dear friend. Louise

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Bill's passing. For well over thirty years I was blessed to call Bill my friend and colleague. He always represented my financial interests with the highest level of professionalism. To Kathy; Although I never met you Bill always spoke of you as someone very special. May God Bless his precious Memory and your family now and always. Bob Zischkau

My deepest sympathy goes out to Bill’s family. I have known Bill since I was a child attending St. Michael and All Angels Church. I remember his beautiful singing voice and commanding voice when he was a deacon or lector. Later in life I was one of his clients and he always took care of his clients as if they were family. He was such a faithful man and made you feel special. I will miss him.
