    I wish that we had gotten more than a week to spend together, but I’m glad I at least got to know him for the amazing, cheerful, loving person that he was. He was the absolute best dad I could have asked for, and stepping off that plane to meet him in California started the best week of my life. I’ve never met a more spontaneous, funny, cheerful person in my life. He could make you cry from laughter within seconds of meeting him. He was, by far, the most selfless, perfect dad

    Thank you Bill for being the best husband to my niece. You treated her like the queen. You picked her up on those hard days at work. You’ve also excepted all those kids and grand kids as your own. We loved having you in our family. Your kind, loving heart will truly be missed. Even all your goofiness. My god welcome you in his arms.
    Love you always
