I miss you already. Our trips to "the donut corner," church gatherings at Creekside, & so many conversations. You are a quiet hero the likes of men I wish our generation could get to know. I am a better man for having known you Bill. Kim and I and the boys will never forget you.

Bill was my friend for years, meeting usually at the coffee shop which he had a personal seat. Bill was a icon there as he walked with his cane from his home. He had MANY friends there, and had his usual coffee and doughnut.
Bill will be missed. Rest in peace my friend.

So sorry to hear of Billy's passing. We had tried to contact around Christmas. My mother is Billy's cousin (Mary Roberts Skelton) and she always told us about Billy living and working in San Francisco.

Please accept my condolences. Our families were intertwined over the years. William's sister, Louise, was my Aunt by marriage to my Uncle Clifford Cowan. Charles Cowan
