Kevin, Susan and Jane, I am so sorry for your loss, it's so very difficult to lose our parents. I knew him in Beloit, but our friendship grew after your parents moved to Goddard. He was always one of my very favorite customers at the hardware store. And he always reminded me that we shared birthdays, that he was just a bit older. Hugs to you all.

I was fortunate to have Bill as a neighbor for 4 years! I remember him being outside working in his garden, mowing his lawn, planting flowers and just about anything else he could find to do outside. He would share his garden crop and I shared blackberries and blackberry pie with him😀 He was such a kind, hard working man and I feel blessed to have had him as my neighbor. Prayers for Alice and the rest of his family!! He was a wonderful man!
