Our days at OKI will be different without you. Over the years you introduced us to so many, so many that are now our friends and family. I have many fond memories from those years I worked for you at Jefferson-Pilot. I'll never forget the day at the office that you introduced me to Walker, the love of your life. I always teased you about becoming a different, amazing boss with Walker by your side.
RIP Bill united forever with Walker.

So sorry to learn of Bill’s passing. I am very shocked. I have known “Gibboney” (as he was called by many friends) since high school. What a fellow he was! I was fortunate to have visited him in February, at his daily watering hole, Duffer’s, at Oak Island Golf Club. Bill was the Southern gentleman’s Southern gentleman. He liked to refer to many longtime friends by their last name. At times, I was merely “JJ”! I have so many great memories of Bill, since 1959. RIP, my friend. You are now reunited with “the love of your life”, Walker.
