Bill was a great guy .... we both loved drag racing , him and Terry in sand and me on water. After much conversation Bill convinced me to attended a race in Holt then he came to St Louis for his introduction to the boat drags. We were always thinking about ways to continually go faster and quicker.
Bill was the "go to" guy whenever assistance was needed with utility chores , trenching or storm drainage. Enjoyed the conversations , backyard parties, races, Bar B Q and a cold beer now and then ... peace to you my friend !!

Uncle Bill, Dad and I were able to go to Arrowhead to watch a Chiefs game. A huge snow storm had just passed through and they worked for hours to shovel off the steps up to our seats but the seat areas were still packed with snow. The three of us bundled as best we could and cheered on our Chiefs. I think that was the coldest I’ve ever been but boy did we have fun. I have a picture of the three of us from that game in my office. Very special indeed! ❤️
