Dear Bill, Susan, Kevin, and Joyce,

We were so sorry to here of your Dad's passing. The Parker family will always be indebted to Bill for hiring and mentoring my father (Roy Parker). I remember Dad and Bill sitting around the kitchen table going through all of the training materials when I was a Junior in high school. When I began to consider State Farm as a career, Bill was kind enough to meet with me and explain the State Farm Agent career from a management viewpoint which led to my State Farm career of 42 years. You have our deepest sympathy for the loss of a wonderful man.

Kindest Personal Regards,

Jean Oljace

To the family of William Nuss. So sorry for your loss.

So many memories of Bill and Dee. My husband, Dr. Donald Oljace passed away Nov. 4, 2017. Bill and Don both played in the Scottish Rite Orchestra driving to Indiaapolis, IN every Monday night for rehearsals. They both played the violin.
Bill was kind of the match maker for Don & I. So many lovely memories.

With Sympathy,
Jean Oljace

Your father was a wonderful friend to me. Our friendship developed at Holiday Village about 4 years ago through our mutual friendship with Mary Jane. He shared many memories with me of his family, his life, music and sports. He lived life to the fullest and his family was his greatest joy. I am very thankful that your father was a part of my life.

Susan and family: I loved seeing your Dad's smile because his laugh is what I remember about him. He had such a great sense of humor and he used it frequently with me. Your mom used to say "Biillll" if he embarrassed me (in the best possible way, of course.) He was a great guy and, I know, a great Dad. Blessings and hello to all of your family. Love, Madelyn
