In life God places people in our lives that influence us to become better servants, better men and to teach us how to live better lives. Bill that was what you were to me. From the time I came to the NCDOT you were always there as a friend and mentor. You never failed to teach me the skills I needed to become successful at my job. But more than anything you were always my friend, there to support me, there to help me and there to listen. Though my heart is heavy, I know you are now at peace and home with God. I can not thank you enough for the things you have done for me and will truly miss you. Thank you God for placing such a special person in my life. The few moments I got to spend with you the other day will never be enough for me but I know one day our paths will again meet and we will again pave many roads for others. Remember where there is Lightning there is Thunder! To the family, I love each of you and pray for your comfort. we all were truly blessed to know and have Bill in our lives.
Prayers to the family, God bless you all!
i am going to miss you so much uncle bill .and i loved you so much
You were a man's man Bill. We always admired you and hoped that one day we would be lucky enough to grow-up and be like you. Billy always used to refer to you as, "Big Bill" and he would say it in a deeper voice. He didn't mean it mockingly, it was always said with a grin or smile, because we knew you would set us straight if we got out of line. You were an inspiration to us as growing boys, and as we grew older there were few people we respected so much. I remember coming over to the house knowing that I had to pass by you sitting in that chair, and it always put the fear of God in me. I knew that with a look in our eyes, you would know we were up to no good. Your were a great man, father, roll model, and friend. You will forever be missed, but never forgotten.
You're family is in our thoughts and prayers. With deepest sympathy from the physicians and staff at Springs Road Family Practice.
