    I want to extend my sympathy to the family.
    I always enjoyed visiting with Bill and Charlotte at any of our class reunions and in the later years our luncheons, when he was able to make it.

    Bill was always such a gentleman. I can’t think of ever hearing him say an unkind word. I loved the little grin that would creep over his face when he told a joke. Sometimes I would practice the organ during the Sunday School hour preparing for church time. Often Bill would poke his head in the door to say he recognized the song I was playing or maybe that I needed to “try that one again.” He is one of few people I can say I only have good memories of.

    Bill Was a great christian man and mentor for many years while growing up at first Baptist church 60’s/70’s. Our families were very close growing up, and in addition to church we spent time camping and riding motorcycles together. Bill had a great speaking voice and was our Sunday school teacher for many years. He loved to invent things; garage door openers, electric door locks, solar panel for heating water, and even a small wind turbine. Our prayers and our deepest condolences go out to his family, God bless all.
