May the peace of Christ comfort you all as you will surely miss Bill. I thank God for him because Bill was the best of friends to my dad, Charlie Beckett. They had many good times together in Knights of Columbus activities, fishing trips, or playing cards with the "gang". Bill was always kind and talkative with us Beckett kids. He was a good man and his reward will be great. Peace to you all!

Always there for my parents thru good times and many great memories for all the Beckett family! I hope and pray that you find comfort in your happy memories as well. I just know he's up there fishing and playing cards or dominoes with Charlie, Teresa and the rest of the gang right now. All our love and prayers! Trish and Carlos

Well , I have been blessed enough to have so many wonderful memories with Bill and The Rosenhamers that I am hard pressed to nail down just one. I know that my life has never been the same since the first day I met Bill. He has given me renewed faith, not by dictate but by example. There were no long sermons about right and wrong, there was guidance by example and the innate ability to give his strength and support by just being there. Always. If you are in his circle, then he is always there for you. I am honored and so very blessed to have been in his prayers and in his heart. God Bless, and save a Polka dance for me ..... Love always and forever. Tuni
