We had many memories of Bill. He was such a good Grandfather. We use to sit with him watching sports that included our son Doug and his grandson, William. Then later on the sports field watching our daughter, Brandy, and his grandson, Austin at play.
Nancy & Bill worked together at Boeing, he was in Security at the time. It was my first important job as a secretary. He wrote me up for forwarding classified mail to another employee in an unclassified envelope. He made me read a big manual and initial every page. We laughed about that years later. He was a stickler for rules. I told him he was unfair since he didn't make the person who sent it to me in the same envelope, read and initial a manual. He laughed and said I caught you doing it, not them. He had quite a sense of humor and oh my how he loved and adored his family. It was our pleasure to know him. What a good guy. Our condolences to all the family. Nancy & Cecil Snipes
My fondest memories of uncle Bill was his unique sense of humor, truely a clown at heart always quick with a joke or a funny story. He could be so straight faced and seemingly sincere about a topic then at the end bust out laughing knowing that he got me again. He was very proud of his Marine Corps service, as he should , he was an influence for Billy and I to enlist. I will surely miss him sincerely bob carroll
