I've lived across the street from bill for 12 years, bill brought with him, a character that made our street, a nieghborhood. he was active and vibrant. In his last few days he mowed his lawn, checked on the orca with his daughter Kelly,did laundry, cleaned off the driveway, 92 years old that man had more drive than I did in my 20's. And I'm willing to bet that he's the second busiest man in Heaven. He will always be loved and missed

Iknew bill for about 15yrs.he was always happy,until his wife died. but being bill it did'nt take him long to put back that smile he always had.I work at wal-mart in the meat dept, we talked every time we saw each other.when i drove past his house i would always hit the horn to say hello,because he was always outside sitting in a chair in his garage. i will miss seeing him there, as i will miss him.Jim Flynn

I knew Bill for 45+ years. Always upbeat and great to talk to. Saw him about a year ago, talked for about an hour. Giving me the story about his military service and meeting his wife. He will be missed. Ron Neely
