Dear Taylor and Tracy,

I just heard of your dad's passing. He was always such a kind and light-hearted person. I always enjoyed when he and my Dad would be in the garage, working on cars. I know Dad would have loved to have been at the service, but his independent living facility is on lockdown due to the COVID rates, so he didn't tell me until this morning. Prayers for you all, for your consolation--such a hard time of year to lose a parent. I hope life is treating you well. Warm thoughts of you both!

Taylor and Sharon
We are sorry to hear of Bill's death, so many memories of evening trips to the lake, working on more vehicles than we can count and even sharing a room with Bill when we were on strike in 1981... I always enjoyed the stories about he and my dad when they were young(especially the ones he was supposed to keep quiet). Due to virus concerns neither Dad or I will be able to attend but we are thinking of you.

Side by side neighbors for several years in Buttonwoodbay.
Very good neighbors.

Bill was a very special man! Always dressed so nice and so interesting and fun to talk with him.

But the memory that we will always hold of Bill was at our outdoor church services by the lake in Buttonwood Bay these past several months. Since he didn't live in BWB anymore, he would drive over and bring his lawn chair. He had a certain tree that he liked to sit under every Sunday. Church will not be the same without Bill sitting under the tree in his lawn chair.

This Sunday, we plan to take a red rose and place it in his spot.

We first met Bill after his knock on our door telling us that he was the original owner of our home in Sebring Florida. We talked for
hours after that and we became close friends. It was a rare occasion on Sunday morning for him not to stop by our place after Church services for a cup of coffee and a homemade goodie.
He shared many stories about his past and his family that he loved so dearly. We will miss our friend and know that he is now resting
with his Lord above. Kathy & Jerry Johnson

Bill was a dear friend and we had many good times together in Florida as well as Tennessee. He was a man of honor who lived by his convictions and he will truly be missed.

Brother Curtis Phibbs, Past Master

A brother called to our attention at our last gathering that brother Billy's apron was at his chair but he was not there. No other brother has his apron on this chair waiting for his return.

Brother Bill will be truly missed.

Hold the door Billy, more of us will be joining you in the next few decades.
