Our Dad was always there for us not matter what. Such a positive, encouraging, adventurous, enthusiastic, sensible, wise, fun loving, helpful man. The world feels different without him, he was a shining star in our lives, and will be forever missed.

Bill was always an inspiration. Together we solved many of the worlds problems while periodically driving to Mansfield Ohio during the 17 years we worked together. I’ll always cherish his wisdom, advice, and humor. And, his attitude toward life was extraordinary! He will certainly be missed.

Dear friend
You were the best in all you did and supported. You didn’t let the wheelchair get in the way of what you wanted to do. You were a great fundraiser and board member at the museum. We have enjoyed spending time with you and we will miss you greatly! Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. Love Patricia and Ron Cox

Bill wars a wonderful, kind and giving soul. I’ll never forget the tidbits of wisdom he always gave our son, and he made a big impact in his life. Bel Air Estates will miss him terribly. Rest In Peace and beauty, Bill, you deserve it.

We will always remember your smile and sunny disposition at every neighborhood event. When we were preparing to host a flying event last year, Bill was the first person to volunteer to host a pilot in his home. That’s just the guy he was and we will miss him.
