Fred,
It's been a long time since I have seen you and I always wondered and asked about you. I'll never forget the time at a 7-11 store that was franchised by Louis Bates and you accidentally took off the Cherry syrup disconnect off the slurpee tank and it shot red sticky syrup everywhere in her clean store. Man I thought she was gonna do you in then! You got lucky. You were a brilliant man in the trade and will be missed. Take care my friend.

What a beautiful obituary! Bill was such an interesting man. Usually people are more left or right brained, but Bill was a person who could fix almost anything mechanical, and still be an artist with a wonderful talent for watercolor. He could put on an Academy Award performance for trying to appear curmudgeonly, but never really hide his huge helping heart. He helped me more times than I like to admit when I go through my cancelled checks. In fact, he even coached my friend in California on a mechanical issue she was having. She has never forgotten him. Jan, my hope for you and the kids and grandkids is although you will undoubtedly grieve Bill's death and your diminished family circle, you will take comfort in the fact that after the last few years of eroded strength and declining cognitive abilities, Bill is at rest. This was just something he couldn't fix. He did the very best he could. I send you love. Lots and lots of love.
