Every time spent with Paw Paw Bill (AKA Superman) at the Young family gatherings, there was never a moment that he didn't have a smile on his face, and I was always greeted and said goodbye to with a warm hug and a, "you're such a nice, pretty lady!" One of my most favorite memories shared with Superman, was when my son, Caleb, and myself, were at a family Christmas gathering, and he slipped Caleb a $20 just for being a "great kid." He always knew how to make others feel welcomed and loved. Sending all of my love and all of my prayers out to Angie, her family, and the friend's of the man I knew as Superman. You will dearly be missed, but never forgotten!

Bill and I both were members of Lambda Beta Lambda Alumni Fraternity. That is were I met Bill and became one of his many friends. Bill volunteered to be Treasure of Lambda. As treasurer he was responsible for collecting dues and paying all bills. This job was consuming, but Bill handled it with efficiency and accuracy. Thanks, Bill. You will be missed by many!
