I came to know Bill through our mutual love of The Beatles. We have had numerous phone conversations over the years sharing Beatles stories. Bill was literally a walking, talking Beatles Encyclopedia!! I learned a ton of fun stuff from him!! And what a sense of humor he had!! He will truly be missed!

I’m going to miss your silly personality. I am so glad that we got to catch up in life after all these years. I always bragged about you growing up, how my big brother Bill has a blue and brown eye. I remember when you and Sandy came to visit us all in Southwest Detroit. I still remember that day. Rest In Paradise Big Brother Bill. One day we all will be reunited. Love always your little sister Christine aka Chrissy

My oldest brother Bill. I’m so thankful we had the chance to catch up to life after all these years. When the tornado hit our home here in Mayfield, Ky you asked to reach out to your baby sisters Cathy and I. When I called you, We cried with tears of happiness that you heard we were safe. I loved the silliness of your personality. You always said although you’re the oldest you will always be the good looking one of the family. I love you Big Brother. Rest In Paradise. One day we all will be reunited again. Love always your baby sister Chrissy.
