BILL WAS A DEAR FRIEND FROM MY WORKING DAYS AT CONSOLIDATED FREIGHTWAYS.
WE ALWAYS ENJOYED GETTING TOGETHER FOR A COLD ONE.
HE WILL BE DEARLY MISSED. HE HIRED ME AT CF, BACK IN 1975.
I RETIRED TO FLORIDA IN 1996, WITH MY WIFE ANNE OF 36 YEARS.
SHE PASSED IN 2016 OF PANCREATIC CANCER.
I SAW BILL ABOUT A YEAR AGO FOR MY ANNUAL OHIO VISIT, WITH JOHN PATTERSON
AND BUZZ NELSON.
ON MY LAST VISIT TO OHIO, BILL PASSED, AS HE WAS GOING TO VISIT FRANCE.
HE WAS REALLY A GOOD FRIEND AND WILL REALLY BE MISSED. 74 IS JUST TOO YOUNG.
SO SORRY MICKEY. BEST WISHES, RAY ASHTON

Dear Mickey, Billy & Jenny, Dawn & Dan, Nicole & Eric and Grandchildren:

Our hearts are broken as are yours. Bill was a wonderful person. Not only a great husband and father but the best friend for which we could ask. His keen sense of humor and kindness were second to none. And we had such good times traveling together to places like NYC, Washington DC, the Greenbrier, French Lick Resort and Mexico; sometimes the four of us and other times the three of us. Remembering all the dances and parties we went to and the music trivia at which we excelled brings smiles to our faces. These fond memories will sustain us throughout our lives when we think of Bill.

We are in denial. We keep thinking he can't really be gone. But then the sad truth rears its ugly head and returns us to reality. Sometimes tears start flowing but go unnoticed. This just seems to be normal since that fated Friday Bill left us.

Remember that we are always here for you as you have always been for us.

Love you all,

Don Shank

I remember the good times we shared at Rockport UMC, back in the 80's. Good memories of team teaching with Mickey in Sun Sch.; & in the MYF youth group with the 3 "kids" plus my 3 -- Jeff, Steve & Cathy. Lots of fun. I'll always remember the surprise of my family of 5 unexpectedly running into your family of 5 on the beach at Clearwater, Florida. My love goes out to you all, plus I've already been praying for you, that our faith in the Risen Lord will sustain you and give you assurance. Love in Christ, Pastor Don
