It was a pleasure to know Bill! We had so much fun when we went to Florida with them and at the many memorable Halloween parties that we were invited to. Our thoughts and prayers are with Sue and the rest of his family.

Uncle Bill always knew how to have a good time. He and Aunt Sue would take our family to Orlando, Florida for vacations and we all had a blast each time. He taught me how to play Euchre, which our family plays constantly down in Florida. One time my mom and I switched all the cards while the guys were taking a break. We gave each of them the best cards in the game on purpose just to see their faces. Uncle Bill’s face was absolutely priceless! We also all loved going to dinner shows down there as well! The Al Capone dinner show was always our favorite! I’m sure going to miss him so much! I love you so much Uncle Bill!

I will always cherish the memories of the vacations to Florida and the family reunions that I was graciously invited to. They made me feel like part of their family. I express my deepest condolences to Sue and the whole family. Bill may be gone but he will always be there looking over his whole family. Just remember in the end we will all be reunited with our loved ones. And what a glorious reunion it will be.

My family and I have so many happy memories of Uncle Bill. He was one of a kind! We looked forward to our vacations to Florida with him and Aunt Sue. We had the best times going to dinner shows, dancing to a DJ by the pool, playing Uker and going to the beach. We had so much fun together! He was such a blessing to our family!
He will forever have a special spot in our hearts!

My husband Jim Babcock and Bill worked together at Zollner Pistons for many years. They invited us to go fishing at Lake Eire . I caught a big walleye fish and got an Ohio state pin for the fish and I remember Bill was aggravated with me, I thought it was funny, but Bill was serious about fishing so we didn't say to much about it, we all had a great time. Bill will be missed. We used to get together years ago and play cards, we also went to Michigan to look for mushrooms one time , we had fun Our thoughts and prayers are with Sue and the rest of the family. God Bless you all
