I had the privilege of meeting Bill and knowing him from working at YKK. I always enjoyed our conversations he was a great guy very funny at the end of our talks I would leave with a smile on my face and a happy feeling in my heart. Bill was a great guy and I know you all will miss him deeply as will I.

Just read this.

I have thought about Bill many times over the years; he and I played on the same Little League team as 10 year olds.

So sorry to hear this.

RIP Bill

Our hearts and prayers are with you and your family. Bill was the kindest, most caring man we'll ever know and will be deeply missed. Jan asked me what was the best time I had with Bill and I couldn't reply with just one. Any time spent with him was the best. You will always be family to us, so don't hesitate to reach out for anything.
