    Jo Ann…I am so sorry to hear about Bill. I was in Bible Study with him for years at Fairhope United Methodist Church. He was an inspiring addtion to our class and a joy to be with. Always…he challenged one’s thinking about many subjects. He loved his family and took great pride in his loved ones. It is with the deepest sympathy that I acknowledge his passing.

    I am so sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. I had the honor and joy of working with him for seven years in Mobile in Corporate Engineering Process Control. He taught me a lot over those years and I am so lucky to have known him and worked with him. My prayers are with you all and I know he will be missed every single day. May God comfort and watch over each of you in the days and years ahead.

My family and I am glad and thankful to have gotten to know Bill, he was always a positive person and respectful, he shared funny stories with me and my family that we laugh about often.
