  • What a kind and caring gentleman the world has lost! Bill was friendly and accepting of all. He had a lively grin and a genuinely friendly nature that drew people to him.

There’s a hole in your world, and this man will be missed by many others too.

  • Bill was a wonderful man. I would see him working many hours at the pool, trying to get it ready for the kids. I remember one of his quotes was, “Leave the woodpile a little higher than you found it.” He was a man that truly lived by that quote. I am saddened by his passing. Prayers for all.

  • My dearest Gregg and Richard…. so sorry to learn of your father passing. May you find peace in all your wonderful memories of your dad. Our thoughts and best wishes are with you. Our love….. Lisa and Miguel Montilla
