Sweet, loving, kind, and concerned about others are a few of the many wonderful things about Bill.
I met Big Bill at Country Rock, he came to my wedding to Terry M Watkins, they worked together there and other places for many years. Since I lost Terry I could count on Bill to check on me at least once a month. I hope he is at peace, I can promise you his friends who have gone before him were waiting to greet him!!!!
Love your friends, love your family, check in on them..... God Bless Bill’s Family and other friends.

Bill was one of the sweetest, kindest and wittiest friends in my life. The years in my life before I knew him are a blur as it seems Bill was always there from our days of riding our bikes from Sunnyside to Hampton to just hang out, to skate nights and on to young adults hanging at Country Rock. When I needed chauffeurs to assist part time Bill jumped in with both feet and clients loved him while he added a great energy to our team. He always took my call and I always took his no matter the time that had passed. Words can’t express the loss but heaven gained a true angel. God speed my sweet friend and my thoughts and prayers are with all who love you.

I met Bill many moons ago, we worked together at Country Rock. We remained friends all these years and he was the person I called if I had any questions about laws or vehicles or anything, He was so very intelligent. He was funny and kind and was actually Santa Claus over the phone for so many years to my two boys! We will miss him greatly and my heart goes out to his family and many friends and I pray that we can all find some kind of peace thru this. We love you Bill

Bill was one of a kind - compassionate, caring, and loving. We spent a lot of time together over the years. I was thinking tonight about the first time we met and actually smiled for the first time in days. It is so difficult to believe he is gone from this life. I loved him inside and out! Wish the family peace and comfort knowing what a great man he was and knowing how much he loved Mrs. Barbara and his family.
