I worked with Bill for several year at Home Depot. We were #1 in the Southwestern Region of Tool Rental stores in repairs for over three years. He taught me a lot about construction and other labor environments. He schooled me in life applications as well. He helped many people, even those that he knew meant him no good. God bless the family and the multitude of friends.
Uncle Bill you are so much a part of my childhood memories. You will be greatly missed. Thank you for being there when daddy passed. You made a very sad situation a little easier to handle. Love you. ❤️
Loved Uncle Bill. Enjoyed visiting on the phone with him a few years back.
To all of Bill’s sweet grandchildren, your grandad was very special to you and may you always remember him and your precious grandmother. Love to all of you. Kenneth and Myrna Russell
Love you Bill. You will always be in my heart! I worked with him at Home Depot for many years.
I learned alot from “Wild Bill” and his handlebar mustache while working with him at Home Depot. He was always such a sweet and funny man. I missed working with him when I moved away and always hoped to see him when I came by an visited.
