  3. Uncle Bill was a very special person. I have many fond memories as a child spending time with him and my Aunt Carol. He always knew just what to say to make me laugh. Living in North Carolina has made it difficult to get home to see my family as much as I wish I had, but I will forever hold in my heart all of the wonderful times we had together. I love you so much Uncle Bill and I will truly miss you!!! Thanks for being such a wonderful Uncle!!!

  4. I haven’t been in contact with the family in years but as a child, Bill was like a second father to me. I was good friends with Mike, Billy, Cindy and Sandy. Our condolences to Carol and family from Norm (David) and Cherry Allen.
