My condolence, friend to all the world has lost a kind, intelligent, humorous and wonderful man. He will be greatly missed by many who's lives he's touched.

Had a lot of Fun times with Wes. Played for years in 16 inch softball with him. Met him in Vegas for my father's Navy reunion & had a blast. Always kept in touch when he was in Florida & talked Football & White Sox baseball. I even have old Chicago Bears photos he gave to me from the 1970s & 1980s when he worked the sports beat. We will all miss him. I cannot remember him when he was not happy. Lots of great memories, he will be missed.

Sorry to here of Bills passing. Loved his humor and a down right good guy.

Bill was a one of a kind. Very funny and intelligent. We were on the same baseball team at De Kalb high school. God has you now and forever.

Bill was as nice a guy as you will ever meet. Always fun to be around. truly one in a million.
