ADD A MEMORY

Bill, our old friend you have joined Ginny in God's presence. We have so many memories of you and your family going back to 1970, the year (if we remember) y'all moved to Monroeville. I have so many great memories of working with Bill at Westinghouse, hunting with Bill, and leading Boy Scouts. How about the trap shooting? Remember "pull-bang"? But that was about it- you and I couldn't hit clay pigeons if they were the size of garbage can lids! Remember when we worked with Senior Scouts and build a small turbine to show them how Westinghouse generators worked? And the Vowinckle family weekend camps? Gwen, Bill, and Cindy, we loved your mom and dad and we give you our condolences.

Will never forget the fact that we spent many (4) years together in I Buma Sig and we spent time in later years doing Income Tax Returns and visiting with one another in Marc Island and Bradenton, Fl. Bill was a unique individual and we enjoyed our time together.
