    I am going to miss Bill we had alot of good times and laughter at work and hunting, there was never a dull moment. I was with him when he killed his first deer, and I think he was better with a bow than a gun. ha ha Cousin Jim

    I was so saddened to learn of Bill's passing. I only knew him while he lived up north with Rick and Debbie. He always had a great sense of humor & knew how to keep my brother Rick in check with his ever so quick come backs! And it was always a treat to stop in on a day when was cooking or baking something, he sure knew his way around the kitchen. I am so glad he got back to NC, it was always clear that was where he wanted to be. My thoughts are with Debbie and your entire family. Judy Carpenter, Watertown, NY
