  1. Carolyn, Mark, Todd and the family you know how hurt and sorry I am about Bill’s passing. It is Tuesday at 2:28 pm and I wish I was sitting with Bill up at his house, as we visited so many Tuesday afternoons for many years. I looked forward to our visits every week talking and looking at the mountains and the birds and deer. We were always outside. I will miss Bill so much. I cannot express it in words. I loved him like a brother. May God bless you in this very hard time.

  5. Bill was always kind to me. Giving rides in the winter so I could make it to work. Playing the fireman in a Christmas program. I’m sure he will enjoy Heaven and be waiting for you all

    We are so very sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. With that new healed body, Bill will be able to fish and hunt again. We so enjoyed those fishing trips out to Lake Santeelah with you all! Prayers and hugs to each of you during this time of grief & loss. “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” 2 Timothy, 4:7
