I met and worked with Bill for five years at Enterprise. We became good friends during that time and always tried to work together. We communicated regularly after I left Enterprise
Will miss his friendship and enthusiastic personality.

My wish was always that he had been my Father instead of my Uncle.
(I will always remember his spit shine work boots and starched uniform shirts. ) He has blessed me with SO many great childhood memories. He was truely a
blessing to so many. I will always love this man.
