I miss you so much. it has been hard two weeks without you, and not being able to hear your voice, and all your funny remarks, You were the greatest father a man could be, And i wouldnt be who i am today without you,and i cherished every day we spent together, and the long hot days sitting at car shows, it filled my heart with joy seeing how happy you were and your reactions when you got a trophy. I wouldnt spend my weekends any other way, i love you so much you will always be a part of me, and in my heart and soul, you will be forever loved and missed dearly. My thoughts of you never leave.

Bill, I want to thank you for the daily conversations either in your shop or when you would duck in my office. your infectious personality will be missed by all. Your constant work and get it done ethic was taught to many young guys over the years. They now all have awful big shoes to fill!

Bill, you have been a great friend and mentor to me for many years. I am going to miss you dearly. More than anything else, I am going to miss your laugh that I had the pleasure of hearing every day at work for the past 5 years. You had this infectious way of always getting me to laugh and I will always miss that. No matter the situation, you were always positive and had a way of getting the job done. I will always have respect for you as a hard worker and a trusted friend. I can’t say it enough that I will miss you always and cherish the time we had together. Rest in peace old friend...May there never be a drop of rain in Heaven so you win every car show!
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Well Bill what can I say, besides you were one heck of guy that everyone respected. You were the go to guy for many people. I will miss our conversations we would have and the smile you would put on my face everytime I would come out to the shop. You could always make a person laugh. You will be sadly missed by everyone at LongVANS. My thoughts & prayers go out to Marlene and the rest of the family.

Bill will forever be a part of me lost. He was there for me and brent during our early days of dateing and through out the years. Through thick and thin doing what he could to help brent and i. Although brent and i didnt stay married,bill was still always a good friend and a friendly happy person. Always had a joke and big smiles for everyone. One of bills greatest accomplishments was the wonderful man he made out of his son.
