Sheryl and Family, We continue to pray for all of you during this time of loss. Lean into the Lord for His strength. Love and prayers...

To my “brother” Billi am going to betray your confidence...I want everyone to know that your heart was bigger than anyone could ever imagine. You were one of the most giving and loving man I ever knew. You cared for your mother on a almost daily basis (Gen gave you breaks) and made sure she had what she needed or wanted. You were always helping people. You did not want that to get out...well the secret is out. Rest In Peace. Thank you for being my friend and brother. I love you Bill. And will miss you.

Gen,Sheryl and Harriet, Cynthia and family, you have m. Heartfelt prayers and sympathy. You are all in my prayers.

I worked with Bill, he was always helping me and others out even though he acted like he hated it but deep down he enjoyed it. He was always cracking jokes and bringing snacks in. He had a big heart. He will be missed deeply. Fly high Bill. Love you

I am so sorry for you loss, I worked with Bill at Rubbermaid, he was such a fun person, he had one of the biggest hearts around. He always seemed to know if anyone was having an off day and was there to lend a shoulder. Although I hadn't seen him in years, I thought of him frequently. God Bless you all, fly high Bill.

I am so sorry to hear about Bill, we worked together at JLG. He had the biggest heart for his fellow man/woman. Underneath his make believe tuff skin was a heart of gold! He always went out of his way to help people! He was set in his on way and always gave you his opinion. Most of the time it was helpful! My prayers go out to his family. Bill you will be missed, have fun in heaven. Hopefully I’ll see there!

So sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. Thoughts and prayers to your family. May he RIP!
