Bill was my partner in the NOPD 6th District during the NOPD strike in 1979. He was both serious and funny and we had a great time. I will always appreciate the way he watched my back and taught me more in that 3 week span than I learned in an entire LSP career.

Bill, may you rest in peace and thank you for taking care of me.

With Deepest Condolences,

Vic Summers

A beautiful and moving service truly befitting of "Bill Favor", and his beloved family. We all nearly broke down when Ken's son presented Taps'in Honor of "Our Fallen Soldier". Favor looked as magnificant and proud in death as he did each day of his life.
"God Bless You, Bill", You are already missed!

What a shock to hear of your passing. I just spoke with you a few months ago about my son passing away and the cancer surgery I was facing. You had such encouraging words as always. You were my "best friend" for over 40 years. You had a way of always seeing the good in people, never judging or looking down on anyone. Your were one of a kind that will be missed for many years to come. Your children were lucky to have such a caring father and I hope their memories help them thru this sad time.

My friend Bill was a fine man and as a fellow trooper was a man that you knew would always be there beside you. I have had the pleasure of knowing Bill for over 30 years and always looked forward to talking and spenting time with him. He was a good person. We had many roadside, Hwy 51, discussions that as a younger trooper meant a great deal to me. I will always remember these past times and will keep him in my prayers.

Aline, I am so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. Bill truly was a friend to so many and a great role model for a countless number of young troopers who he helped train over his unblemished 31 year career with the Louisiana State Police. His dedication to duty right up until the day he retired has set the example for all those he left behind.

On a personal note, it was a pure pleasure to have worked side by side with Bill for so many years. After Hurricane Katrina, Bill spent weeks helping me repair two homes for members of my family. They also will never forget Bill's kind and caring ways.

Please know, Eileen and I will keep you and your family in our prayers for a long time to come.
