Most described Bill as the neighborhood good ol boy who always knew just how to cheer a person up. He was eccentric yet generous. A jokester of sorts who would help a random stranger on the street. Even in death he gave the gift of life through organ and tissue donation.

In his honor please consider making a donation to LifeCenter Organ Donor Network or at least become an organ donor if not already.
