  14. Gary and Joyce Little October 20, 2020 at 2:58 pm

    Joyce and I were saddened to learn about our good friend Bill. What a nice guy/ beautiful person / loyal soldier/ best friend. Joyce and I will miss Bill and our visits with he and Maureen. Bill was surely the most selfless person and friend I ever knew. He was always interested in what you had to say and only about himself if asked. Bill’s passing left a large void in our lives and we will never forget our good friend. Gods speed Bill until we met again.

    Kathleen and I know the feelings you all have because we have also lost family. We want you all to know we are praying for you all to find the comfort mentioned in 2 Corinthians 1:3 – 4. We know Bill had accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior years ago while living at home near Kempton. Richard and Kathleen Sprague.

  22. Connie Stoner October 21, 2020 at 6:46 am

    My heart goes out to Maureen and all Bill’s family & friends. He was a treat to work with and one of the kindest men I’ve ever met. I was not surprised at how intelligent he was due to his inquisitive nature. He always wanted to learn more. I’ll miss my friend!
    Have a wonderful time in Heaven!

  23. Becky Montgomery October 21, 2020 at 9:13 am

    The video was beautiful. Bill was so full of Love. He was a super hero because he loved tractors!! I know we didn’t get to see much of each other, but John and I have always treasured your friendship. I remember the fun we had at Symphony on the Prairie, business meetings we were involved in, and all the help you both gave us. I don’t think Bill knew a stranger. He always had a smile on his face and that little laugh he did. Wish we could be there to give you a big hug. Tried to send a balloon, but not sure it worked. Praying for God to give you and your family strength and comfort. Love you.

  24. Michelle White October 21, 2020 at 3:23 pm

    Candy & family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family during this time. He was a very kind man. God Bless.
