When Aunt Elsie, Uncle Bill, Mike and Billy moved to our town of El Segundo in the mid 1950's I was thrilled! Two cute boy cousins the same ages as my sister Karen and me expanded our family and our hearts. I have so many fond memories of our years together, playing cards and games, playing hide and seek outside, gathering together for meals, going to Little League baseball games, sharing Christmas fun -- especially pulling taffy and cutting out paper snowflakes. Bill was always fun and kind, and loved by everyone.

After they moved back to Guymon, Karen and I visited them in Guymon one summer; our family (all 7 of us) traveled in a VW bus to Guymon for a Christmas visit; and Mike and Bill came back to El Segundo for visits in their late teens. We loved being together.

Bill visited my husband and me 20 or 30 years ago, and he shared with me his near death experience when in the coma after his horrific accident. He briefly died and was drawn through a dark tunnel to an all encompassing loving light, a place of utter peace and love which he didn't want to leave. But, he was told it was not his time. that there were things he needed to do and that he would have a son. Reluctantly he left that place of love, and entered a long hard recovery. He did have a son, Scott, a blessing! And he needed to be there for his beloved daughter Teresa.

I believe he now is resting in that all encompassing love and peace.

He will remain in my heart always.
With love,
Cheryl Tchir

Growing up in El Segundo with our cousins, Bill and Mike, made for fun memories for all of the Landreths. We had endless days riding bikes, playing cards, going to the plunge, playing at Rec Park, watching Bill, Mike, Terry and Brent play Little League. Then Debra came along. The summers brought on picnics and the beach, and at Christmas we made snowflakes and had taffy pulls. Bill was a great guy who we loved dearly. We will miss him, but he will stay in our hearts forever.
