I am the man I am today because of him .

Please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss…our thoughts are with you and your family during Bill's home coming celebration. For evermore we will cherish Bill's optimistic and inspirational spirit in our hearts.

Losing someone so much loved and adored is difficulty. May the family and friends find comfort in the God of comfort.

Martha & family, my sincere condolences on Mr. Minahan's passing. He will always be Mr. Minahan, my fiery athletic director who had a soft spot for the soccer team because we were winners. He could inspire you to a win, or inspire you to clean up the lunchroom if you left a mess as well. I loved seeing Martha & Bill stop by the Yankees from their road trips & enjoying life. But the fire was always there! Thank you Mr. Minahan for being a man for others in all aspects. Thank you...

God bless you Billy, Rosanne and Martha.
Thanks coach! Great times playing for you!

Martha, Carl, Billy, Rosanne and your families are in my prayers. I am so sorry for your loss, but hope you fnd peace in the memories of an amazing person. He was dearly loved by so many! Sincerely, Bobby Watson
