As a member of The Outriders Society, I had the honor of meeting Bill and observing his joy and commitment TOS and the KY Derby Museum. Bill has left a legacy of kindness and service to all who knew him.
My deepest condolences to the family. In 1962, Bill was one of the car pool drivers in a group of us who commuted to Naval Ordnance. I was an engineering co-op student and was so grateful to have transportation to work because I did not have a car - I was very happy to pay for the ride. After I graduated and went to work for Naval Ordnance, I saw Bill once in a while, but had my own car by then. He was one of the good guys and I'm sorry I lost track of him after he moved on from Naval Ordnance. Bill was always kind, considerate and funny, and I know all of you will miss him greatly.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during their time of sorrow.
Bill leaves a legacy of true goodness, kindness, and thoughtfulness. He and Libby have been fantastic neighbors for 25 years - I admire both of them in so many ways. My thoughts and prayers are with their wonderful family.
our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this sad time. May God bless you.
To the Nichols family, may God comfort you and bring you peace during this time of bereavement.
I have always looked at Uncle Bill, and you Aunt Libby, as models of how to live all aspects of life well. Our prayers are with everyone.
Kentucky Derby Museum has lost a dear friend. Bill always had a story to tell...mostly about horse racing or U of L sports, or his travels for work...or the love of his life, Elizabeth. My sincere sympathy to all who knew this remarkable man.
