Bill you were the best neighbor and my very good friend . You will be missed by many people.I was hoping you would make it to ninety .I will miss you.
Bill you were a one of a kind gentleman. You will be missed by many. Tell Carol and Ernie hello for me.
Linda, and family;
Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of Bill. Although not seeing him for years, I remember him as a very likeable and interesting person who was easy to converse with. May your memories of him comfort you. Love, Danny
We will always miss the good times we had up north with Bill, Linda, Mary, Bob, Harold and Jojo.
Gail and I just learned of Bill 's passing and offer our condolences. We hope you find peace in the good life he led and the legacy he passes on through your children. We are all here a short time but what we leave in family is a treasure that has lasting value. Whenever I read of one's life I am struck by how interesting people are with interests and passions not known to me. It also gives me the sinking feeling of not having done enough with my own life. Such was the impression from Bill's interesting obituary.
You are a strong person and we know you will do well. God bless you and your whole family.
Dick and Gail Selvala
