    My condolences to Bill’s family. I worked with Bill in Newberry in the early ’80’s. I was traveling from Marquette and spent many nights having a burger and sharing s drink with Bill at his A-frame. Many good conversations. Bill is a very positive memory on my life.

    Ray and Mary, so sorry learn of your brother/in law passing away. We will keep you all in our prayers. John and Suzanne Coyne

    I am very sorry to learn of Bill’s passing. My memory of Bill was that he always was a very “nice guy” who never had a bad word to say about anyone.

    Ray, our deepest sympathy to you and your family.
