Thank you for being the father to the single most wonderful person I have ever known, my husband David!
We rarely saw things eye to eye but we both did share a deep and loyal love for David.
In Christ

I've known Bill for over 20 years. He has helped us as a volunteer cook each month for the dinner we provide to the people with HIV/AIDS in Youngstown, Ohio. We know him as a gentle, loving man, who valued his relationship with God. He walked over our hearts and we will always cherish his mark upon our lives. Sr. Kathleen Minchin, osu

Uncle Bill always had a smile and warm sense of humor. I remember his trying to call me "Mary-Beth" but it never stuck.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all the family.
