  • This man was one of the best God ever made. He was always on an adventure to help someone. He loved his family and friends with everything he had. He would be their before you knew you needed help. His family and friend have lost a part of them selves, and the rest of the world lost an angel. God has taken home another angel…and He will be missed so much from the people are left behind. God bless all of us and give us the comfort and peace to know that Bill has received the best place by your side.

  • Prayers for the family. What a man of God ! Bill was there for everyone , a true Brother ! He made a big impact on my life and everyone who came in contact with him !

  • We are so very sorry and have you all in our prayers. He is surely in Heaven and will watch over his family and friends. Bill was a wonderful example of a life well lived. He will not be forgotten.
