  1. So sorry you have left us Bill… sure had a lot of good times when we were younger. It was great when we ran into each other usually at the grocery store to catch up. You are in a better place. You are gone but never forgotten. Lou Ann Olsen

    RIP MY FRIEND,We had lot’s of great times growing up, always lots of laughs, condolences to the family.

  4. Bill and I go back to the days when we worked together at my dads gas station. I use the word worked very loosely as between Bill, Danny, Ralph and myself we drove my dad crazy. Bill had the ability to make you laugh and if you ever needed help he was always there.. if you had to define what a friend is you could start with Billy. Best to Jim and Stan ..and to you my friend I will miss you.

  5. So long Bill. I have’nt seen you in a while but I’ll never forget the fun in high school and a couple of Canadian fishing trips. God Bless.

  6. I only got to know Bill a few years ago, about the time I needed help after my previous vehicle broke down — but he never hesitated to help me out even though he lived about eight miles or so away. It was wonderful to know that I could count on having a “neighbor” like him. My condolences to his family and friends. I shall miss him and pray that he receives the heavenly reward he deserves.

    I got to see you and give and get, our yearly hugs. You will always be my buddy. You helped me through so much, as you have many. I am forever grateful. Fly high Condorman!

  12. Although I never knew Bill that long, he was a good friend, when ever he seen me whether at church or at the super market, he would greet me with a big hug and say “hey there you big GA lute you”. He liked to talk motorcycles and family things, he even bought the motorcycle I was selling. He always seemed to have a smile on his face, and always talked about the love for his family, and also how he enjoyed helping out on his Mission trip to Guatemala, with Mount Hope Church. I will certainly miss Bill.

  13. Bill, what a great person. I always enjoyed talking with you because your closing comment was always humorous and positive. It was great we ran into each other earlier this month and was able to talk about the old days at GP and was able to catch up on the present. It is very sad for us that you are needed in another place. You will be deeply missed. I will be going down state tomorrow to help my son move into a new house, I will do everything in my power to be back for your service Saturday morning.
