I had the good fortune to meet Bill on a few hunting trips with the "boys". I remember him as a kind, generous and knowledgeable man. May you rest in peace and God bless you.

Dear sweet Bill. You will always be a shining star for all who knew and loved you. Though you were in my life briefly I felt the care and genuine love you showed to anyone in need. I always enjoyed listening to your stories when we all were camping. I happy to have known you. Rest in peace and God a Bless you Bill. Love Lorry Woody and Josh.

Dear sweet Bill, you will always be a shining star for so many people. For the brief time you were in my life I felt your love, care and genuine support you had for anyone in need. I loved hearing your stories especially when camping. Thank you for touching my life and that of my son Josh. Rest in peace and God Bless you. Love Lorry Woody.

I never saw Bill Brewer play baseball or, for that matter, even watch a game. But, I have it on good authority that he played in at least one game for the Oakdale High School varsity team. I got the story straight from the horse's mouth.

Apparently, Bill was tapped to pinch hit late in a game. The coach called him over and instructed him to “take” the first pitch. Mistakenly thinking that he was meant to swing at the pitch, Bill spanked a double to right field. Much to Bill's surprise, the coach immediately pulled him from the game and gave him a tongue lashing. When Bill protested that he had followed the coach's instructions, the coach explained that any fool knew that to “take” a pitch meant not to swing at it. Bill said, nobody ever told me that and, by the way, I hit a double. But, the coach didn't care. That was it for Bill. He wouldn't play for the man again.

Uncle Bill told me that story several times over the years, but he never elaborated on its meaning. He didn't need to, because the incident spoke for itself. The lessons were: (1) be fair in your expectations; (2) communicate your expectations clearly; and (3) stand up for what is right. As far as I ever observed, Bill never departed from those principles. He was a worthy role model for any young person, and I'm proud that he was my uncle.

Aunt Verna, Dan, Tim, Patti and family, you are in our thoughts and prayers. We hope that you feel only the love and support of the many family members and friends who love you and cherish Uncle Bill's memory.

Love,

David, Myrna, Dustin, Devin, and Amy.
