Our condolences to Uncle Bill’s family. His vibrant long life was a blessing. Although we havent seen him for a few years we still talk about how lively he was even in his 90’s.
Kathy, Barb and families, we are so very sorry for your loss. Uncle Bill was such a kind man and don’t remember seeing him without a smile. His laugh was infectious and how he loved his family! He is in heaven with Aunt Frannie and the boys. Rest in Peace Uncle Bill.
I worked with Bill at the old Bendix facility and have had Lunch with him many times at the IHOP in Lees Summit, Mo . Sorry I can not make the service, was to late to change a previous appointment. I too am quite ancient (92) but not quite as old as your Dad was. I am truly sorry for your loss, but He and I had talked about how old we were and we felt we have had a good life. He was a great man and he is defiantly in a better place. A true friend Bob Hayter
