I’ve had two hero’s in my life and he was one of them. He was always up for traveling and fun....we were so lucky to have built many wonderful memories together and we will treasure them always. He was a great listener and always laughed at my jokes. He was quite a guy.....Words can not express how much we’ll miss him.

My deepest sympathy for your loss. I had the pleasure of meeting your husband/father a few years ago when I took care of him. He was a very genuine man who cared for his family immensely. Cherish the memories and all the good times.

Uncle Bill was one of smartest and nicest people around, he was a very loving husband and father.
He was always positive and will be missed dearly.

So sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. I’ve known Bill for many years through work and golf. It’s been awhile since we have talked due to my relocating to Tn. and a few surgeries have slowed my trips back to Michigan. He is one of the good guys. I hope to see him again and play another 18. Gonna miss ya man.
