Mr. Bill was a great friend to my dad. Once my father passed we became a good friends as well. I always enjoyed his stories from the childhood years as he and my dad were the same age and grew up in the area together. I really enjoyed the stories from his years at the arsenal as well. He will be sorely missed by those who knew him and counted him as a friend. Rest peacefully Mr. Bill.

I worked with "Hoot" for over a year at the Arsenal. We had a good working relationship. My condolences to Doris. We had a mutual friend Edsel Gallimore who had known him since he worked at Clover Creamery. He was always concerned about his cattle and his farm. Rest in peace!

Mr. Bill is what I always called him. I thourghly enjoyed taking care of him and Mrs. Doris. He was set in his way and stubborn sometimes but he was also a joy to listen to his stories of him growing up. He will always be in my heart. Rest in Peace Mr. Bill.
