Rest in Peace Bill. I have fond memories of Bill & Irene coming over to the Walimaki's home while I was a young child to watch Wheel of Fortune, etc.
Irene and Bill are part of my childhood, remembering them as the nicest people around. Later in life in their retirement years they volunteered at the I-5 rest stops with my grandparents, Axel and Lila, and took part in watching our kids-Lacey and Ryan grow up too. Bill your smile will be remembered forever. Love Debbie and Jeff Nedrow
you are in my thoughts today Grandpa
Thanks for being a great and dedicated employee at Western Gear for many years.
Always a smile and a friendly hello!
I know how much your family loved you. Especially your great grandchildre Mitchell and Chelan, who are our grandchildren. You have been such a loving presence in their lives.
I'm very sorry to see that Bill has left us - All the best to his survivors. I knew him owing to my association with George many years ago - I still remember the day the three of us went to the World's Fair in Seattle.
Grandpa, you have created wonderful and caring family values and for that I am grateful. I thank you for always lending an ear to listen, giving thoughtful advice and wisdom. Your loving arms and gracious smile will be in my memories forever. I love you!
This was truly one of the finest men I have known in my lifetime. He should be an example for all of us to live by. Pat and I send our best wishes to all of you at this tough time. What a life to celebrate.
Much love to you and your family Dawn. He seems like a real special guy- wish I could have met him. Sending lots of prayers as you prepare to celebrate his life! Blessings to you all!
We love you Pops! Thank you for teaching me how to love deeply and be a good friend. Thank you for sharing all your knowledge, especially about fishing!! I will miss you!

Taking me fishing and teaching me how to tie a fly... So many wonderful memories.. I feel blessed to have been your Grand daughter. I will always love and adore you . You are in Gods hands now.. Peace be with you Gramps..
Kailee couldn't of said it any better. You truly were one amazing man. Someone I will always look up to, cherish and remember. You're love for Grams, 74 years of marriage, is such an inspiration to me and all. You always had a smile on your face and such love in your heart for all. I feel so blessed to have had you in my life. I am glad I got to say I love you one last time and I know with you're smile you were saying it right back. I miss you so much.
Thank you for many years of your gentle smile and sweet kisses. Thank you for loving my Mimi as much as you did. You sure set an amazing example to the fellas. Your relationship with Mimi has been more than inspiring. I've been staying strong and silently mourning your passing since you are in a great place. God gets to be fortunate to see that beautiful smile of yours now. I know you are patiently waiting for Mimi. She's stubborn, but you already knew that. :) I love you. And moments before you passed when I told you that, you smiled, tried to say the same, but I told you I already knew you loved me. I will miss you dearly. But I know when I get to God's Kingdom you will be there to welcome me. So keep smiling up there and waiting patiently. Until we meet again Pops.
