Bunnie, Debbie, Bill and families. I am sorry to hear of your Dad''s passing. What great memories I have of him from 3rd grade through high school. I will always treasure the nickname he gave me, "Zuskie", as I had such a long last name. Your entire family was a big part of my life and Bunnie and Debbie my best friends for years. I'll keep you all in my prayers. Thanks for sharing your Dad with me! Much love, Susan Oberholtzer Adams

To Bill, Bunny, Deb, Millicent, Christie, Sarah and Charles. Losing a loved one leaves a void that in time is filled with wonderful memories. You are so fortunate to have been blessed with such a kind hearted and caring father and grandfather. His legacy lives in all of you through your outward kindness, generosity and love of humanity. He will be greatly missed and my thoughts and prayers are with you, Lori Preble

To Bill Jr, and family,

Billy, I'm so very sorry to hear of your dads passing away. He was one cool fellow and a really good friend to my mom and dad for over 5 decades or so. And boy could he crack a funny joke or two that would even have me as teenager laughing hard. I use to think he was the JOHNNY CARSON of the GREENSBORO ELKS LODGE too. ! Your dad always brought a smile to my face. Both your mom and dad were such good friends over the years to my mom and dad and to my two sisters Elizabeth and Susan.I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
