I miss you Dad. I wish you had made it. You were one of a kind. Yooper Bill the man who could fix nearly anything with duct tape. I always loved you even during the dark were always great with my son and my husband. My heart aches knowing that we will never hear your stories, your voice, and hear your goofy laugh. The world lost a great man that day and I lost the only father I have ever known. 
Miss you.
Until we meet again.

We are truly saddened by the passing of Bill.  He and my mom attended a lot of our son's football and basketball games. He always carried dog treats in his pockets. When he visited our house our dogs knew Bill and that they were getting a treat. As did all the dogs in their neighborhood. 

Bill we love and will miss you, but will carry you in our hearts forever. 

Peter, Jackie, Nathan and Ryan
