I’m so sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. I have so many childhood memories of him coming to visit my dad and learning to shoot guns up on the hill with my dad. I will always remember his voice. My deepest condolences to all of you. My mother sends her sympathy as well.

Uncle Bill … unwavering in his beliefs, devoted to his faith, proud of his family and appreciative of his heritage.

You will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.

There is now a second card table up in heaven with dad, grandma, pap, Uncle Mick, Uncle George and now Uncle Bill joining them.

Rest peacefully, Uncle Bill, after a life well lived!

Our thoughts and prayers to Aunt Babe, Mike, Stevie, Scott and their families.

With love,

John, Melinda, Sydney and Jack

It was with sadness that I read of Bill’s passing. He was always cordial and helpful to me any time I needed the Ormet Lab. I considered him a friend, and also knew George for years in New Martinsville. The family and his memory are in my prayers.

What I remember about Uncle Bill was his tall stature and booming voice. You could never miss him when he entered a room. I also admired his positive outlook. He will surely be missed. Prayers for all who hold him close to their hearts.
