Uncle Bill will truly be missed, he was such a beacon of light in everyone’s life and there was never a dull moment when Bill was around. He was the life of every party. I will always remember how much fun Bill had with the kids, in fact he was just like one of them!
He was a really big part of my life when I lived in Virginia. My ex husband is a marine and was stationed near my uncle bill. We didn’t want to live on the marine Corp base so my uncle let us rent one of his houses out in the country, it was such a great place to live! We even welcomed our son Logan home in that house! This just goes to show you the type of person Bill was; he was always there for me as well as others when you needed him.
I know he will be watching down on all of us from heaven making sure we are safe and having fun in life. We will miss you Uncel Bill.

Whenever I think of Uncle Bill I think of his contagious smile and one of a kind laugh. He always made sure we had the best time when we visited and always treated us (Erin, Nina, Mary, and myself) like we were kids of his own. It seemed like every time we saw him a lifetime memory was made. Whether that was riding on his motorcycle, in the corvette, or shooting off fireworks, he made it something I can't forget for one reason or another. Even something as simple as going to get Chinese food will be a memory if Uncle Bill was there.

The day after my wedding as many people are rehashing the prior night, countless friends would mention spending time with Uncle Bill, I could see the impact he made on so many people. He will be missed not only by me, but by so many. Thanks for the memories Uncle Bill.

Bill was my knight in shining armor, my protector, my jester, my sounding board and my safety net. I knew if Bill was going to be there I was sure to have a good time. It was Bill’s job (in his mind) to make sure of it. More important to me, Bill got me through ALL my sad times, all my anger issues, and all my “I don’t know what I’m going to do” moments. He always understood me and he always knew just what I needed to hear. He would do absolutely anything for me from calling me out sick in high school, to picking up Erin’s car at Jeff’s wedding, and many much more serious things. I only wish I could have been the same for him. Even at 55 years old he still called me Kido even though I told him not to. I loved him like a brother and I know he adored me . I thought we would have many more times together. To say I will miss him through all the happy times and all the sad times that are coming my way is a huge understatement. He loved my children Erin, Jeff, Nina and Mary. They will miss him very much too. I will cherish every moment we had. Rest in Peace Uncle Bill. I look forward to seeing you again

It is so hard to sum up all you feel in a short post. I have been thinking and thinking and remembering and it feels like there is more to say. I just don’t know how to put it into words, so here is one more picture that to me shows the Bill I knew. Love you Bill

I met Bill as a teen over 40 years ago. He was my Uncle Bill and the same to my kids and then grandkids. From the moment I met him I was affected by his suave, his confidence and his joy of life, and that is what I will always remember. He was larger than life and always fun. There are many great stories that get retold often that I will always remember. I swear he always had a smile on his face and easy laughter. I will miss you Bill. I wanted to include more photos but can only choose one.

Bill had just completed his first home in the Harbour when I moved here. Our paths crossed many times and I had the pleasures of being his broker in the Stafford office of Coldwell Banker Elite. I depended on Bill for always helping me when I needed work on my home after my husband died. He brought people he had known and worked with for years, introduced them and came back to be sure it was done right. He always had a story and a heart as big as any I’ve known. He made a light house for me and it sits at my water feature in the yard. I often look at it in the evening and watch the light. Lovely remembrance of Bill.

I’ll always remember my Uncle Bill as the jovial, goofy kind of uncle who everyone (especially the kids) enjoyed being near. He was the kind of uncle that would tuck crayons into his upper lip to look like he had walrus teeth and who always had a joke or a funny, sarcastic or witty comment. You were never bored hanging out with Uncle Bill. He laughed a lot and smiled even more. He was kind and loving. He will be very fondly remembered as well as greatly missed. Below you see my Uncle Bill with my daughter Raeah on his lap. They say kids and animals are the best judge of character and with this, the proof is in the picture.

I’m so sorry to hear of Bills passing. I guess George and I knew Bill for 25 to 30 years. We always enjoyed talking to Bill. My deepest condolences to Grace and Family.
