Bill was a 'one of a kind' brother. So many memories of our childhood years not to mention his always being there for me when I was 'down and out'. He made me proud to be his sister and he made me proud to be the uncle and godfather to my 2 children. I will never forget his smiling face and his humor. I will miss him so much!!!!

I'm happy to have had the pleasure of meeting Bill and your family. In that brief time, he was nothing but kind and light hearted. I will forever remember his eye rolls and Taffy's milkshakes. I'm so sorry for your family's loss!

In the brief encounters with Bill at CLI I came to respect and enjoy his company. Pax Vobiscum Red Rivers CLI 47

St. Catherine's sign of peace was the best with Bill around. We would all disappear in his hugs.

I can describe Bill in a word...Gentleman. He made his mark at Buffalo Cigars with his remarkable quiet strength, and kind spirit. Before he left the shop after his shifts, he would make sure to go around the lounge and shake everyone's hand. For some reason, that always meant a lot to me. He will certainly be missed. My prayers are with all his family members as they grieve his loss.
