Bill was our next door neighbor when he lived in Kirby. He was always interesting to talk to. He took great pride in taking care of his yard and spent many hours keeping it mowed and trimmed. He also was very well disciplined when it came to staying fit. He would do his regular set of exercises early in the morning and then ride his bicycle around the neighborhood. He also had a great love of cats and was very conscientious
in feeding and caring for them. Joan and I are saddened to learn of his passing .

My heart goes out to Bill's family in your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Bill was a great neighbor and good friend when he lived in Kirby! He always had the best groomed yard in the neighborhood! Bill shared with me his daily routine starting his day about 2:30 AM with a regimented work-out in his driveway. He was always in good shape! Then he would board his bicycle to feed about 50 cats at designated locations in a five mile radius before sun-up. I am thinking the police asked him once to wait until daylight to be safer! He then visited Charlotte's grave, cleaned his house, messed with his family of cats, and then sat down to watch his favorite show, Judge Judy! Bill's neighbors and I made sure he was well nourished sharing our meals with him. He always met me in the middle of the street with pot holders in hand to receive a hot breakfast casserole some Sunday mornings! The last time I talked to Bill a few months back, he still remembered his friends in Kirby! I will miss him! Julie
