While Bill and I did not work together at Farm Bureau, he was always helpful when I needed something from his department. In the hallways or cafeterial, it was always a "Hello, guy" or something to that effect when we passed. My condolences to the family for your loss.
Kathy and family,
This is a very difficult time in your life. We are wishing you strength to get through it. Hold onto all the good times!
I worked with Bill at Farm Bureau and remember his gruff exterior, but also his marshmallow interior. Even after he retired, you could on occasion find him in the cafeteria with his coffee, ready to talk. It was easy to tell how much Bill loved his family.
