It is with a heavy heart that I learned of Bill’s passing. A flood of wonderful memories…we went fishing, hunting, golfing…we once rented a plane and flew the Black Wolf Run to play that course.
Bil and June visited us on their way back to WI from Fla when they came South for the Winter. Our thoughts and prayers are with June and the children. Rest in Peace my old friend. It was my pleasure serving with you.
