I will always remember how much Bill was dedicated to the students and staff at BEA. I would always seek out his opinion on how to deal with the situations that I would encounter at work. He was always willing to help. He also helped me to hone my sense of humor. I will miss him.

Bill's life will live on in those that had the opportunity to know Him. He was a follower of Jesus Christ, His Savior, and spread the Gospel of His Lord. He was a Friend to everybody He met, and His sense of humor, and kindness always was evident. We will miss Him, but we know that His spirit is with God Almighty, safe and secure for evermore. This is a loss for sure, and especially to His wonderful Family, and a void will remain as long as life continues for those that loved Bill.

Bill was quite a guy. He always had a moment to listen. He asked how things were going and he was a prayer warrior. Bill was always willing to lend a hand when and where he was needed. I loved being part of his Sunday School class. He was putting in commentary to make it funny, but he knew his stuff and I learned a lot. Bill was a great friend to our family. especially my dad. He was a great father and grand father and a godly example to those around him. He will be greatly missed.
