I valued knowing Bill as a friend and faithful Christian brother. We used to enjoy reminiscing about “Mother Snow”, whom I knew as a child when she would order coconut layer cakes from my mother. His was a life well lived and he will be missed. May God comfort and strengthen you in your loss.

We all have to go sometimes but it is always a sad loss. He helped my family to accept the home goings of many in our family.

Bill IV and all your dear family, I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of your sweet father. I first met him
over 50 yrs. ago when he began eating w/me at my first Nu-Way on Northside Drive. He had known my father for years and shared many stories with me.
He was a true gentleman and I was blessed to call him my friend.
He always had amazing stories to share, which reminded me of my father, who always had stories that taught me lifelong lessons about honesty, work ethics, and friendship.
I will miss seeing him at Kroger
Pharmacy with his infectious smile and kindness. Love and comforting prayers to you and your family, Beverly
