Please accept my deepest sympathies.

Our deepest sympathy to Diane and the family, from PPRG Tech Writer Teammates

We know that Bill is with the LORD whom he loved. Our thoughts and prayers are for his loved ones who will miss him. We always enjoyed being with Bill and Dottie, and loved to hear Bill play his fiddle and use his talents for the LORD.

I treasure the memories of times with Bill,Dottie and family, and nobody can take away the sound of Bill's fiddle (including the second fiddle he carried in his case to play Black Mountain Rag).He has left us a fine legacy of fiddle music, and I only wish that I'd lived closer to him over the years.BillClifton

You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace, Bill. I believe God is enjoying your music now.

Sweet Aunt Dottie, Gail, Diane. Peggy and Melody
I am so sorry to hear this sad news of Uncle Bill's passing. Me and Mom send our deepest Sympathy and Prayers for all at this time. I LOVE you all so much!

Bill Wiltshire was a great fiddle player and always a barrel of laughs. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
