To Bill & his Family and friends, we were sorry to hear of Bill's passing,I hadn't seen Bill in years but the memories he left us will last forever, a very loving man, I remember when he drove the school bus he would put on after shave lotion and we could smell it, now our laws prohibit it. He would bring his little Jeep "Willy" with a snowplow on it to our Sucker Lake farm and plow our pond so our family could skate on it. That's the kind of person he was, we are all going to miss him, he had a Heart of Gold. Bill may you Rest in Peace.
