To Jean and The Winking Family,

I was very saddened to read about Bill's passing. I had the great fortune to meet this fine gentleman over 20 years ago when working on TALLGRASS and subsequently on the construction of his residence there. Bill was great to work for and with.

Bill would keep an eye on the neighborhood and give me updates when I would stop in to see him...generally during happy hour.

We would talk about the latest news, our families..tell stories about our athletic prowess...lies about our golf games...discuss the stock market (Bill always fretting...me telling him to relax)...good...and bad...jokes.

A great athlete, as well as a darn good golfer, nonetheless he always talked down his skills (when negotiating for strokes)....old blue eyes knocked in his blind approach shot for an eagle on #10 at the Rail the very first time we played together....

Rest In Peace old friend...we all will miss your sense of humor, great smile, and the ornery twinkle in your blue eyes...but mostly your banter and your friendship.

Please accept my most heartfelt condolences.

Sincerely yours

Chuck Meyer

Dear family, I met Bill a couple of years ago at Denny's on Stevenson Dr. He always had a smile and something funny to tell me. I saw him at Denny's again shortly after Dr. Dan Adair passed and we were chatting. He got up to leave and rubbed his one knee a bit, said something about having knee replacement surgery. I asked him who he went to, as I'm in need of a knee replacement, and he said, "I was hoping my nephew Danny would do it, but he sent me to someone else." He had striking blue eyes like Dr. Adair had and right then I knew they were related. He sat down at my table and we talked about the loss of a wonderful man whom he greatly admired and loved, along with his family. That was the last time I saw him as Denny's closed on Stevenson. I was just thinking about him a few days ago and wondering how he was doing. Bill was a wonderful person and I'm sure will be missed by many customers and servers at Denny's. You have my deepest sympathy. May your memories bring you peace during this difficult time.

Todd, Teri and Tracy So sorry to hear about This. Mr Winking (aka Mr P) was a second dad to me. Always looking out for us. Whether he was helping me put breaks on my car or a swift kick in the backside. Mr. P always cared. RIP.
