22 years ago I started work with Bill here at AutoNation. We worked at both store level and Corp side of our business. Bill had the great quality of seeing the positive in all we did. We are now both grandfathers and our conversations always ended with how blessed we both were with our families. Bill is the true picture of a gentleman and friend. Heaven just got one of our Best!
