He was a good friend and confident. God bless family at this time. We commend a faithful servant of Christ to God's care in the certain Hope of The Resurrection. Rev. John Smolik

Marcia, Rachel and Family, and Joshua,
Few words can express the lasting blessing Bill leaves with us. He lived a life filled with the Holy Spirit. His wisdom and knowledge answered many questions. Often, he seemed so serious, but when the right moment presented itself, he could show his humor and laughter. Although, we only had direct contact during those years at St. John's, he always greeted us warmly as long time friends whenever we met. Angels welcome him home and we rejoice in that consolation, but oh how we will miss those brief moments when we could chat for a few minutes. Our sincere sympathy to you in your loss.
Denise and Rick
