What a kind and generous man. Bill and Susan welcomed seven of us in to their home after the Agnes flood for two weeks. That is a true friend and certainly a true christian. We will never forget their generosity.

I had the please of knowing Bill for the past 8 years. He was always the first to make you laugh, point something out in a way you never thought before, and then made a joke about it. One thing I loved the most about him was what a proud father he was, and how he always wanted to make sure he passed on his wisdom so his children could learn from his mistakes.

We will always remember Bill for his energy and enthusiasm and for his willingness to help others. He was a great leader and a hard worker who gave his all for Pioneer and for his friends and family. He truly was one of a kind.
