When taking a picture, Bill made it an event rather than an instance as it lasted several minutes eventually being captured in a panoramic view. He lived his life with a panoramic view enjoying a variety of interests including; music, sports, travel, movies and books. He was a patient listener that gave great thought to the few words that he said. He spoke with kindness and love. He loved his children, adored his grandchildren and cherished his great grandchildren.
Also, the family would like to extend their sincerest gratitude to his family at Elderwood of Hamburg for their understanding, support and loving care of our father.
