Not sure what to say?

Many may know him as Bill, or Billy, or William; I simply know him as Papa. He was the strongest person i have ever known, not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally. He was the one to teach me long division, the person i would always look at right before i answered a Jeopardy question; He was the one that introduced me to rocky road ice cream, and the person that showed me how amazing a marriage could be. I will miss him more than words can describe, but knowing he is smiling...

Uncle Bill & Family,
You'll be missed a great deal by family & friends. I'll always remember & treasure the visits to our house in NJ. He always made me laugh. Love & prayers to you & your family always. Love, Karen, Sean, Travis & Tyler

What a handsome picture of Bill, this is how he will be remembered, always with a smile.

I met Billy when he married my twin sister Patsy. I will miss him, but he is now in the arms of the LORD. Praise GOD!

Our journey began when I was 11. He helped me become the person I am today and for that I will always be grateful. He was a man of great Courage, Honor and Charcter. I love you Dad and you will always be in my heart.

As a child it was always a big deal when Uncle Billy the Marine came to visit N.J.
I still remember his quick wit and easy smile. My thoughts and prayers are with Uncle Bill, my California cousins and families.
