I will never forget Bill as he got me my job at Porter Cable in May 1980. I always admired him as an engineer. He will be missed.

I worked with Bill while I was with Rockwell. I remember Bill as a very nice man. He was kind to everyone. So sorry for the family's loss.

Bill was a good bother-in-law. He helped get me a job at Rockwell, where he worked and always watched over me to make sure I was treated right. He loved his family and his three children and his wife Georgia. He will be greatly missed. Prayers to all the family! Love Claudine

Prayers for the family! I work at G&H and he used to always come by the store with stories, buying bolts and nuts. I will definitely miss him!
He was such a sweet guy! 😢
