Bill was a lot of things to the people close to him. He was the Boss to his family, he was a leader in the workplace, and he was the best friend any person could ever have. Love, Budd Anne and Ed, Matt and Beth.

As my brother has posted, Bill was a great baseball friend and will be missed by all. His wit was amazing and his flare for the humor of life was enjoyed by all of us that had the pleasure of knowing him. God Bless Bill "66's"

I knew Bill for over 40 years as we were members of the same fantasy baseball league. Bill was at my home a number of times to enjoy our mutual pastime. He was a happy, quick witted and wonderful friend. He will be missed by all he came in contact with over the years. Rest in peace, Bill.Don Miller
