So many fond memories of Uncle Bill singing at family reunions and being gentle and tender hearted with anyone and everyone he met. Much love and prayers to Colleen and Pete. Your dad will be missed.

Rest William, until you hear at dawn,
the low, clear reveille of God.

Thank you for your service to this nation.

So sorry for your loss. It is never easy saying goodbye. Bill was such a sweetheart ..
I met Bill 36 years ago at Boeing. I was a regular at the print shop and it didn't take long to get to know Bill. We shared the same birthday. I can still picture him with his headphones on listening to his music and rolling out printed paper and drilling 3-hole punches.

I left Boeing in 1989, and many years later I met Mike and married into the Maxton family. It was some time afterwards, at a family reunion, I was surprised to find myself looking into the face of my "old friend" Bill. Uncle Bill you will be missed.
