Bill was such a kind and wonderful neighbor for 20 years. The 5600 block of Botanical Ave is a bit dimmer with the loss of his bright cheerful spirit. Bill was always quick to share a smile and hello! As he inquired about our family and children, his eyes would sparkle and never give a hint of his ailing heart. Bill will be greatly missed, but we will be forever better for having had him in our lives!

Bill touched our hearts so very much, and we were so blessed to have him in our family. His smile would light up a room, his stories guaranteed a laugh and his hugs warmed our hearts.
Heaven just got an incredible angel. So grateful for his imprint of love in all of our hearts, and the many memories his love has left us with.

Bill was truly a Daddy...I always have been told many can be a father but takes someone very special to be a Daddy. I know Bill has been that special Daddy!! His presence will be missed by everyone who knew him and all will look forward to the day when they are together again. Until that day his memory will remain fresh and he will not be forgotten!!
