    Condolences to Bill's family and friends - We have been neighbors with Bill for many years. He would always wave and say hello while he was out working in his yard, fixing his cars, cutting his grass, and taking his dog for a walk. We always admired the many birds that visited his feeders. His secret he said, was to just keep it filled. Rest in peace, Bill.

    He was a quiet gentle soul and always fun to be with. I will miss him and he will always be "uncle Billy" to me and my family. My deepest sympathy.
