  2. I worked with Bill at Morgan and also drank a few beers with him. He was one of the nicest people. Always enjoyed chit chatting with him and just having a good ole laugh. Roben and I always enjoyed seeing you. Fly high my friend.

  3. I worked with Bill many years ago.
    Always joking around. Sending my thoughts and prayers for the family.

  4. I remember working with Bill at Fairview. He was a very good cook, he made the best chili. My best memory was when my husband Stacy, my daughter Emily and I went to visit him! And Emily and Bill chased chickens around the garden and she thought it was hilarious his dog drank his beer. You will be missed my friend. The Kunes Family
