I am sorry to learn of Bill’s passing. I worked with him for 10 years at the DOH. Whenever I think of him, I think of Wayne. Those two were quite the pair. He worried everyone with his mo-ped! Take care and God bless.

Our loving Uncle will be sadly missed. We would like to share some of the memories that we had with him like the time he took Korrie to the hospital to get a diaper change, singing ” I Want to Hold Your Hand” by the Beatles when we were taking walks, there was never a dull moment. Bike rides were risky with Uncle like the time Gwyn and Uncle bungee corded Korrie’s tricycle to the back of his bike. He also rode us kids in the basket on the front of his bike until he couldn’t see over our heads anymore. One time Uncle actually got a speeding ticket form the Fairmont police for riding to fast on his bicycle. He loved taking us to the Capitol Musical Hall and listening to the concerts on the AM station. He was always good for a game of pool with Sam. John and Jakob were his best shopping partners. Uncles favorite movie was “White Christmas” and we faithfully watched the movie with him on Christmas Eve. He loved taking care of and spoiling his four legged neices Maggie Maye and Charlee Rose too.

We also have learned alot from Uncles compasion for those in need. At Christmas he always gave to at least five angels on the tree. He picked up an item for the soldiers every time he went to the Dollar store. He spent days collecting donations for the American Heart Association and we are proud that Uncle recieved top earner one year. There are a million other thoughts of Uncle’s compasion for others.

Uncle was also a man of God and shared his pasion for religion with us, which has helped guide us through life and has been helpfull at this time of grief.

With loving and lasting memories,

To Uncle’s loved ones.

I only knew Uncle for about a year, and he touched my life in a verry positive way. Uncle always put everyone else before himself, and his ailments. He was so full of life, and always made me laugh. I am so glad Korrie and I had the chance to take him on a boat ride earlier in the summer. It will be a memory I will cherish for eternity. Uncle will be dearly missed by me, and my family. I rest easier, and so can everyone else, knowing that Uncle is now in heaven with our Lord doing the things he always wanted to do, but his health wouldn’t allow.
