  1. To the family of Bill,
    I was saddened to hear of Bill’s passing.
    I’m happy that I was able to visit with Bill a few times before his passing.

    I missed seeing him at our Loss of a Spouse meeting’s on Monday afternoons.

    I met Bill shortly after the loss of is dear wife.
    He was in a gret deal of pain at first and I’m happy to say he found friendship with our group, and as time went on he was able to handle his loss better.

    We enjoyed his company, he was a true gentleman and friend to all.

    He loved his family and talked of them often.

    As if it wasn’t enough to lose his dear wife, he also suffered the loss of a daughter and a son.
    It was almost more then he could take, not even being able to attend the funeral of his son, since it was in FL.
    With the help of his second family, “The Loss of Spouse Group” he got through this loss also.

    Bill loved his family, loved gardening and was writing the story of his life.
    He manage to keep his mind occupied and his life interesting.
    Bill didn’t let his sight disability get in the way of doing things he wanted to do.

    Bill is now in God’s loving care, with his wife and children.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Bill and his family, may God bless them.

  • Thank you for your wonderful tribute to my father. Dad fought long and hard and didn’t want to give up. We have all suffered too much in the last year. Dad and I had some wonderful conversations over the last few months and I am greatful for that. I can say he went peacefully surrounded by his family and went the way he wanted to go. It brings comfort to me that he is no longer in pain and suffering. He has earned his wings and is with the rest of our family. Rest in peace Daddy.

  • To Bills Family,
    I worked with Bill at the home Depot in Jensen Beach then at the Gatlin Store. He was an awesome associate. He always keep himself busy and did everything he could to help his customers. He was missed there when he retired and moved up to Connecticut. Wayne kept in touch with him and always let us know how he was doing. I know in my heart he is in a happy place with his wife and daughter and son. He will be miss but we will always be in our heart for knowing him.
