Oh my, such a loss! Bill was one of a kind: professional, personable, and conscientious. He was a joy to be around. He cared about his family, work, and colleagues. You were always glad to see him and, clearly, he was glad to see you. The OCC Highland Lakes campus was a better place with him there. He is sorely missed by all those who knew him.

He was such a great person. I felt like he almost was a second father to me in more ways than one. I will miss him in so many ways. My thoughts are with robin and Wendy during such a difficult time. I will always remember him for who he was.

We spent some great times camping fishing trips to Fletchers floodwaters and snowmobiling with the Watts family. Bill truly loved his whole family and many friends. The last of his family and I’m sure he is with them now. Kiss them all for me.

If you Judge the character of a man by the character of his sons, Bill was a man of great character. I will always cherish my time with Bill and his sons. All three men of great character. I am a better person for knowing these fine men. My condolences to Robbin, Wendy and family. Rest In Peace Bill.
