I had the privilege of knowing Bill. Such a kind soul and loved his family. He will be missed. It gives us peace knowing he is now with his Lord.

Sarah, your Dad will always be with you where ever you go. He is looking down on you as a proud papa. He loved you and Ty so much as he did all of his family.

RIP Bill.
