Col. William L. Bates Jr.

Wednesday, February 05, 2014
I just discovered that Col. Bates had passed away. I worked with him in the Dept. of Corrections during the 80s & 90s. He was a great mentor and friend. I also had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Charlotte during time. I know his heart broke when she passed away. But now they have been reunited. Although it has been almost l year since Col. Bates passed away, I just wanted his family to know what a very special man he was. I was very blessed to have known him & his wife.
