I've thought about Bill often. He was one of my trainers at State Farm. I still tell the story today, about when he was riding with me. I was going down a street (too fast) and saw a DIP sign. I kind of yelled that out because there wasn't time to slow down. After we went over the dip, he calmly looked at me and said, "What did you call me?" We had a good laugh over that. A good heart, a great teacher, a good sense of humor and a kind man. My heart goes to his family and many friends and prayers that their sorrows will bend to sweet memories of a man loved by many.

Sorry to hear this sad news. It's been many years since I last saw Bill but I can still remember his sense of humor and his laugh. Sorry to his family for their great loss. Praying for peace and comfort in your days ahead.

Saddened to hear about Bill. Of all those who shared with me during my career I think I learned the most from him. I was a better representative because of him ... and a better man. His legacy will be hard to forget ...

Sorry to hear this about Bill. He was a great guy. Always willing to help me as I learned more and more. Great sense of humor. I've missed working with him. I'll miss him even more now. Godspeed, Bill.
