    Where do I start…Bill, you were the best person inside and out. You and Kathy were always so excited to see us coming to town. You all would call and say “guys where are you at?” Both of you would be on the porch waiting for us when we finally arrived. We were just excited to see you all as we had so much fun at your house. There was never a dull moment and always being crazy at times. You meant so much to me, more than words could say. I know God only takes the best, you were the best. You were a wonderful person and so good to many family members and friends. There will never be another tooth fairy like you with that tooth on your shirt. You always came in after work with that smile on your face and say, “what’s going on or did you all just get out of bed?” What a wonderful husband you were to Kathy. You loved her unconditionally and were her rock. You reminded me so much of my dad. I am so lost and heart broken but Bill, I know you are with us. I wish we could walk the stairs to heaven to see you, but I know we will again one day. You will forever be in our hearts. Sending you all love, prayers, and bear hugs from NC.

    Billy you were our uncle but growing up in our house with Rose, Shorty, your mom (Nana) us 4 kids and you and Mike you were both more like brothers to us. We’ve shared a lot of happy times and sad times with losing our dad Shorty and your mom Nana. Mom was left to raise us 4 kids and you and Mike and she did a good job of it. So many good memories growing up, the story of you scaring Mike with the blinds in the bedroom, you and Mike fake shooting a BB gun at Kenny coming home from school, was it fake? Hmm. You always had that comedian streak in you and fun to be with. That’s why you have so many friends, you are always funny and fun to be around. You and Kathy blended so well together because she is just as funny and fun to be with as you. It must have been fun and laughs at your house most of the time especially with Kathy’s cooking and her Kathy Sunrise! You are a good grandpa, husband, dad and brother. I’m sure you have Dad, Floyd, Doris, Nana and all our family in Heaven laughing. We will all miss you as so many others will too.

    Where to begin…countless laughs, memories, and a extraordinary guy who never met a stranger. You made our trips to Ohio ones we will always treasure. Your hospitality was endless and you never once complained about you list to pick up from your wife, even if you had just been to the store or produce stand. We could always find you watching either Cincinnati Reds baseball, Bearcats Basketball, Golf, Andy Griffin, or the Hallmark channel (you especially loved the Christmas movies). Everyone who knew you loved you, your humor, and your wit. You were the life of the party and Kathy’s rock. You always laughed at us acting crazy, trying to get our “steps” in. I am pretty sure you were your street’s favorite neighbor, if the light was on in the basement, usually someone was over. You loved your wife, all your kids (Kathy’s too), and all your grandkids fiercely. I could go on and on, but my heart is broken and wish we all had a more time with you. You may be gone, but we will all never forget you, Bill. Sending love, hugs, and prayers to all of our Ohio family.
