I did not get to spend a lot of time with William, but when I did get to visit with him we always had great conversation. He could talk about anything, and was just a pleasure to be around. William was just a salt the earth guy, and he will be missed.

I will always remember the thoughtfulness of my brother in law. He was who he was he did not put on any heirs. I have know him since I was 10. I remember staying with them when there kids were baby’s. He was always good to me. I will will always remember his laugh and smile. I love you and will missy out . Prayers for my sister Lisa and his children and the rest of family. RIP Willy ⚰️
