I will fondly remember Uncle Bill as a very kind and helpful man. Edith and Bill got folks square dancing at our wedding reception. I remember going hunting with him back in my teens. He was a good shot and a fun guy. Our condolences to Edith and all the kids.

The first time I met uncle Bill, him and aunt Edith were first dating. She brought him to meet my mom and dad, Pete and Isabelle. We were saying goodbye's on the back porch. There was a bushel of tomatoes on the porch As Bill was getting in the car, I threw one at him. Mom was mortified! Of course I missed! Why I remember this I don't know! Maybe to bring a smile to your face at this sad time. Love to you all, Pattie (Patricia Leland)
