My brother Billy is now dancing on the streets of gold with our beloved parents. My last words to him were "I love you and will see you later." He is now free from this crazy world with all its pain and cruelty. He is with our Lord. Praise the Lord!

I worked with Bill for many years in Columbia SC. He was a great person and an Excellent RN. His dedication to the well being of others is sorely missed. Rest in peace.

To the Chaney family i send my deepest condolences.
I had the honor and privilege of helping Bill with his Medicare insurance for several years. In fact I had just seen him in late November, so this left me in shock. We left that day talking about getting together again when the restoration on his truck was complete.
He was one of my favorite clients who became a dear friend. Always a smile and a kind word or joke to share with me. In fact his birthday was a week before my daughter's birthday.
He was gracious to refer several clients to me for which I will always be grateful to him.
I will definitely miss him.
My prayers for the family during this difficult time.

Bill was a devoted Christian brother, a treasured friend, and a dedicated Christian man who served the Lord with his whole heart. He was always willing to help a friend, sing in the church choir, participate in prison ministries, and many other things that served others. He truly cared for his biological and church family, desiring to spend time with them and delight in their company. His wonderful sense of humor brought joy to all who knew him. We were all truly honored to know him. Bill will truly be missed, but will someday soon experience the joy of meeting our Lord Jesus Christ when He comes in the clouds of heaven!
