    I got to know Bill several years ago while in Saugatuck. We had many fun times and great laughs together. He was a delight to be around, bringing many smiles to everyone’s faces. Now he can soar with the angels and keep smiles on everyone’s faces in Heaven.

    Rest In Peace Bill.

    I met Bill about 20-30 years ago. I always remembered him because he made me laugh and he was fun to be around. I had been wondering what happened to him. When he lived in Grand Rapids, he wasn’t that far from me. I had no idea he had moved to the Fennville area, still not that far away. Too bad I never got to see him again. I will remember him! Rest in peace my friend!

    When we moved to Saugatuck in 1996, Bill was one of the first to welcome us. We visited with him everyday when he worked at the old newstand on Butler Street. I especially enjoyed our long, friendly conversations when I went in to pick up the paper on those cold and blustery winter days. Bill was funny, warm, and caring. I will always have fond memories of him.
