Uncle Bill will be missed lots And for his family big hugs for all of you
To Olga, Cindy and family,
My deepest condolences to you all during this very difficult time. Thinking of you all,
We are so sorry for your loss!! Bill was a lot of fun and gave so much for all of you and the community. The many hours he spent freezing to referree and stand soaking wet umpiring is a great example as to his character. He was always looking out for others and with the help of your mother raised five super children! A major feat in this day and age! Love and Condolences Pat & Lynden
