My deepest sympathies to Nancy and the family. I worked with Bill, or as I called him, Mr. Bill, at Wright Medical. In a world where just about anything goes, Mr. Bill was such a moral, ethical businessman. He kept Christ at the center of his life and truly let His light shine through him in both words and deeds. Always kind and approachable...funny, warm, larger than life. He will be missed. I pray that God wraps the family up in a comfort and peace that surpasses all understanding.
