My deepest sympathy to the family. I worked with Bill when he was employed at the Powell Company. Bill was a very dear person and I thought of him as more of a friend than a co-worker. He was always there to lend a hand wherever and whenever needed. He will be missed by family and friends, but one has the many memories of him. May God be with family and friends during this time.
