I grew up with Trisha, Bills daughter. I was at their house almost every weekend during school and all during the summer. Bill was a great man who loved his kids and wife Shirley immensely. He was like a 2nd dad to me. He would get after me and Trisha for picking at Lee (lol) but also guide us so we wouldn’t get in trouble. He loved telling jokes and telling life stories and he would do anything for anyone in need. He will be missed dearly!
