It was a beautiful service. Papa you will be missed by all. Sending a hugs to heaven. Love Ashley
I’m so sorry for your loss. He will be missed by many. I remember so many things. I remember when they got an Atari gaming game system. Yes, that long ago. He would practice all day when he was off of work then want to challenge the kids. He liked to win and got really upset when he didn’t. He LOVED Juice Newton. ❤️. I wish I could be there to support my girls, but I didn’t want to make Billy’s wife comfortable. This family will always be part of my life. My prayers are with you, Susie. May God wrap you in his arms.
Susie, Bill Jr, & Rhonda,
With a heavy heart we are so sorry for your loss. Bill will be missed but never be forgotten. He had a wonderful sense of humor. And a beautiful smile with a big heart to match and his family meant everything. Bill rest in peace.
