Dear Doris, I know I'm late in responding but I just found out about Bill's passing. I've known Bill all my life because he and my mother were best friends from H.S. and reporatorie theatre. He was by far one of the funniest men I ever knew and I loved him dearly. My folks also loved him and enjoy not only his wonderful array of humor but he and my father both enjoyed a good political banter and we still loved him even though he was a republican(that's the sort of humor we had fun with Bill over!!!). I know he and my mother are having a great time together now. Enjoy each other and know that you are both missed tremendously. Give my mama a hug Bill. I know she will enjoy her time with you, David and my husband. All the greats are going and I pray it's to a better place without any pain!!!

I am grateful for the life of Mr. McGehee. Thanks to his service and to the service of others in our armed forces, my family and I have been able to lead our lives in freedom and peace.

We were so sorry to hear of the passing of Bill. We have so many good memories of him in Raytown and Misssouri politics and always enjoyed his wit when in his company. He will be missed by you, his family and all of his friends.

My deepest and heartfelt condolences to all of Bill's family and relatives. I first met Bill when I was 16, during my first trip to the U.S.. Him and his wife Doris hosted Patrick and myself for almost a month and I am still impressed today by their hospitality. I will never forget that, and hearing the news about Bill really made me sad. He was a great man, we will all miss him. Rest in peace, Bill.

My husband and I met Bill at a Optomist Club function in Raytown, MO. He had the gift of making people feel at home. He was always friendly, kind and fun to be around. God bless him and your family, and our sympathy at your loss. We are sure he filled your lives with fabulous memories. Jackson and Janet Erwin

The Theatre in the Park at Shawnee Mission Park rented a control board and Followspot from Bill for the our first 10 years. We didn't have our own until we moved to the current location in 1980. Bill and Allied were a fine group to do business with.
I had the pleasure of going with Bill on a flight to see a client in Nebraska.
It was a good day for flying. Our prayers are with the family.

Doris and Family,

Barbara and I want to extend our most heartfelt prayers and thoughts to you and the McGehee family for your loss. For over forty years, Bill was one of my best friends. From Raytown political activities to the Raytown Optimist Club, Bill was an excellent leader. He always kept things fun,interesting and moving forward. I always looked forward to hearing Bill's latest jokes! In recent years, Barbara and I have enjoyed going out to dinner with you all and watching Bill select the best wine with such expertise, knowlege and ease. As they say in show business: "He was a class act...and he had a good run!" Bill was a good friend who will be missed!
