While we only met Bill two times at the lake, he was such an interesting and kind person. We enjoyed his company and hospitality and are sorry to hear of his passing. We know he is in a place of peace, happiness, and light where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. May he rest with the righteous.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

We never did get in that round in which you agreed to share your swing thoughts! Life's a little better for those who have known you, to have listened to that one-of-a-kind laugh! You know, the one you used when told of my hole-in-one! Glad you a part of my family, Bill!

To Bill's family, What a blessing "Schleis" was to our family over many years of our lives. His presence, his genuine friendship, care, concern and his laughter---priceless. I am thankful that Willy was a friend to my parents--- as he was often at our home. We loved having him around. After my parents died Bill remained in our lives as our friend---always welcoming, willing to listen, to advise and often gently reminding us about some things we needed to remember. He cared. Our family will miss Bill, I will miss Bill. He gave us many of life's priceless gifts--his authentic friendship the most valuable gift of all--it spans three generations. I have no doubt that Bill is out enjoying a round of golf with many of his family and friends in heaven. What a reunion! He is happy, he is feeling great and he is at peace. God bless.
