  • Bill will always be one of my “good” memories from having worked with him at PPG. So sorry he passed on, but he left what I knew as a good legacy. May God bless all of his family and help them thru this trying time.

  • Dear Donna, Patty, and family,
    On behalf of Assembly 844, please know that Bill will be greatly missed. We often speak of him very fondly as a “member of the old guard” who kept the Council and Assembly going through some lean years. I’m happy to say that our numbers have grown exponentially, thanks to his devotion to the Knights and our mission of charity. He was one of the stalwarts, and certainly didn’t hide his love for the Church and for the Knights; Bill has been on our Good Of The Order prayer list for a while now. Please know that the family — Donna, Patty and all of you — remain in our prayers and we lift you up to the heavenly throne of our Lord. May He surround you with his holy angels for peace and comfort in this time of loss. God bless you all.
