On behalf of Bill Fouty’s family, thank you for your many sweet messages of condolence and comfort. Bill was truly a godly patriarch. He was faithful, forgiving, patient, wise, gracious, diplomatic, cheerful and kind. (He was also quite clever, musically gifted, and charming.) With his passing, our family - indeed the entire world - has lost a great man. But Bill leaves us with many precious memories. His legacy shall endure through the generations that follow. Bill lived well and died well. All who knew him were blessed by him. Praise be to God.
