A wonderful man and a genuine business associate and pioneer. He will be sadly missed by us all. I already miss his wisdom and stories from his past.

I HAVE ALWAYS HAD A DEEP RESPECT FOR ALL OF OUR WAR VETERANS. I FIRST MET BILL IN 1960. WE HAVE WORKED ON VARIOUS PROJECTS TOGETHER FOR 53 YEARS. I CAN NEVER RECALL A TIME THAT BILL WAS NOT COURTEOUS AND PROFESSIONAL. HE NEVER SPOKE ILL ABOUT ANYONE EVEN HIS COMPETITORS.
BILL DID NOT SELL A PRODUCT, HE SOLD HIMSELF. I WOULD AND ALWAYS HAVE SPECIFIED ANY PRODUCT HE REPRESENTED. HIS PRODUCTS WERE BACKED UP BY HIS NAME.
BILL WAS A FINE CHRISTIAN IN HIS WALK AND HIS TALK, A WONDERFUL FAMILY MAN WHO DEEPLY LOVED HIS WIFE AND CHILDREN.
WE WILL MISS BILL BUT ONE DAY SOON, ALL THAT KNOW CHRIST WILL SEE HIM AGAIN.
OUR PRAYERS ARE WILL ALL OF THE FAMILY MEMBERS. GOD BLESS

Bill and I have been friends since I was a cub apprentice in 1967. He always had a smile and a cigar in those days. Always willing to help in any way. Thank you Bill for being there for all these years. Thank you Jeff for carrying on a proud family name and tradition. Gone but never forgotten. From me and the men of local 17.
