When I moved to Pataskala years ago for a teaching position, I knew no one. Mom was helping me unpack & get settled in, but when we ran into a problem hooking up my w/d, mom knew exactly who to call: Bill!

Bill came right over, made several trips to the hardware store & solved the dilemna. That was just like Bill.

Over the years mom & I have been privy to numerous family stories by Bill & Carol. Most of the time laughing, but like other families, sharing tough times too. You will be missed Bill.

Your unassuming manner and sincere interest in each person you have met is truly the key to the deep friendship so many of us have been honored to enjoy with you. You are one of a kind and will be truly missed. Thank you for sharing your memories of those good old times with me.

Bill was the best friend and neighbor we could ever have. He actually was more like a brother. Bill was a master of so many things - gardening, planting/ caring for trees and his property, mechanics, construction of his homes, fixing every thing - but most of all a true friend. Always there to share and care. You raised 3 fine sons and had a wonderful wife. So many wonderful memories. We will miss you terribly.
