  6. I can see his character- For example, he stays with my daughter, Suzie in going and down life. He takes care of his darlings you and kids while Suzie was very busy with her school or job. His characters show loyalty, playing and humors. His kids never forgot what he did do for Suzie and his kids. Glad all of you have many good things about his life in your life. He did do best for Suzie and his kids.

  7. Billy , I love you ! Me and Leslie will miss you so much. Thank you for always being that caring loving cousin. I always admired you for the family man you were. You and Suzie made it happen no matter what obstacles stood in your way. Summers won’t be as warm nor as fun … thanksgiving won’t be as lit up … nothing will be the same… my heart is broken. Catch you in the flip side cousin♥️

  8. CandleBill also know as “old man Bill“ at AABC got his name from that deep commanding voice and the wisdom plus knowledge he personified. One thing that stuck out is that he was always able to speak from his heart and let you know what’s his mind even if it offends some people. He was able to Express himself truly.He has a big Loving heart; always sticking up for the picked on and voicing for those that are unheard. A go getter and resilient person, Bill was a leader, able to overcome anything at work, and a team player. His work speaks for itself and anyone would love working with him. Skillful and a quick learner, He knew how to get it safely done in a timely manner. You’re a world of knowledge and you’re one of the encyclopedias thats gone forever and only the creator can read. The day you left was the day an angel came back to GOD.
