I just found out and am so sorry. Bill did so much for all of us, especially Mom, Dad and I, that he deserves the biggest best reward in Heaven to go with that big heart.

I remember when he was just a kid living in businessburg. Tommy used to tease him because he had a little crush on me, we were in high school and he was a toddler or preschooler
They later moved closer to me . My son and I used to walk up there because his mom made the best deserts. The last time I talked to him, he was sitting at the mouth of the creek, He had just lost his mom,dad and grandmother in the flood. My thoughts go to Linda, may you have peace. You have lost so much.

He was a great man. He will be missed. I remember watching softball games as a kid and watching him work in his paint shop all those years ago. He was so full of life and love for my family and I.
