Very sorry to hear, but a part of me rejoices knowing what rewards William is receiving in heaven. He will always be remembered as a gentle, quiet and loving person and a family man who loved unconditionally. The smile revealed a deeply tender spirit and though he had many tragedies in his life that would have destroyed a lesser man, William endured through his heartbreaks like a true soldier of Christ. I am thankful he got to travel late in his life and I thank him for his military service. Prayers for the family.

My wife and I worked with William at Impact Food Pantry and also saw him at church too. We will remember him as a kind, compassionate man who was a hard worker and dedicated servant of people. My wife Pam and I wept when we heard of his passing. May he enjoy his wife and loved ones in heaven! We will miss him!
God bless you William.

I met William on a cruise to Australia, along with a large group of other single cruisers. He was a lovely man, and very sad to hear about your loss. May he cruise in heaven.

I loved Uncle William the first time meet him when I was a small child and was dating my aunt Mae. He was quiet and gentle but had the best laugh. He adored his family so much.

One memory I have was he liked to scare me. He had a partial denture bridge for some reason. He would pull it down so it looked like he had fangs. Scared me everytime.
He will be greatly missed

So sorry to hear this. William was a part of a small group we formed on a cruise that was so much fun, we went on another one all together! We have been friends ever since. He was such a good guy. He will be greatly missed.
