My most happy memory about Uncle Bill: Before Uncle Bill and Aunt Jane were married, they would take my brother, Bob and my sister, Shirley and I for ice cream, which was a big treat, in a yellow ‘57 Chevy. It was beautiful.

Jane and family,
We are saddened to read of Bill's death. We have wonderful memories of being neighbors on Michele Drive. Bill and Nelson used to keep each other posted on the deer and turkeys that made their way through the woods and our yards and they would swap hunting stories at the end of season. We share our condolences with you and wish you God's comfort and peace.
