I am so very sorry for your loss. Bill was a caring and very funny man, I enjoyed talking to him every day usually around 3:00 or shortly thereafter. I enjoyed seeing him everyday, he always put a smile on my face. He will be very missed by myself and our office.

Rita, So sorry to hear of Bill's death. We never spent much time together but always enjoyed seeing him and we know he will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with you and your boys.

Bill was one of my favorite cousins, he had a great sense of humor, a deep and abiding love for his wife and sons, and passion for hunting and fishing. I know that if there are fish in heaven, they had better watch out! May the Lord provide his comfort during this time of mourning, and the promise that you'll be together again. Wish I could be there, but know that you're in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Willie

What a tremendous loss to our community and workplace. He always was so friendly and was an all around great guy to know. He never complained and was always helpful and smiling. He will be greatly missed.

Rita and family, It was a very sad day at the Courthouse after we heard of the loss of Bill.

The family is in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

I was really taken back when I read about "Smiley" even though I only worked with Bill part time he had the nicest smile and disposition and he would empty my trash while he would wait on me to finish my apple continuely asking me to talk when I had my mouth full and laughing the whole time. You will be missed Bill.
