He had a strong work ethic and worked hard his entire life. Bill was a family man and enjoyed spending time with his wife Kimberly and family and friends. He genuinely wanted to be with the people he loved. Bill was a strong athlete and enjoyed participating in the Pikes Peak marathon and various other marathons. Bill and Kimberly loved to go shooting in their spare time. His knowledge about guns, planes and the military was astounding. Bill was beyond interesting to talk to because he had such a wide range of knowledge. He could talk on anything from politics to religion. Bill’s family extended from coast to coast and his friends were also spread across the country. He talked to everyone he met and was genuinely interested in their lives. He was a man of honor and integrity. After a conversation with Bill, you became his friend.

I remember Bill for his quick humor and humble being being; and how proud he was of his family and their accomplishments. He was a great boss to me and to many others. He will always be remembered.

Bill brought sanity and levity to the workplace, that we direly needed. Working with Bill was a pleasure, and you always wanted him to succeed, mostly because he worked for his people, and not for himself. Good picture of Bill, and his smile. It tells you a lot about him. We lost a good one... Condolences to Kim and the family.

Bill, I (Teri) will always remember your genuine concern for others and your great sense of humor. I have to tell you now that you never quite convinced me you were from Texas. Something about the accent . . . :-) Our hearts and prayers go out to the family and we pray for God's comfort and peace until you are reunited once again in heaven. Love, Teri and Robert

I was so shocked and saddened when I heard of Bill's death. I worked with him at DEC for 5 years as the HR Generalist supporting his group prior to my layoff in 1992, and shared his love of running. This picture taken in 1992 at a race is of me with two other HR coworkers of Bill...Jerri Jason and Marsha Bowen. We all thought the world of him!
