My condolences to Bill’s family. I had the privilege of being around Bill when I would cut his hair at my barbershop in Mishawaka. He was a great guy and was always pleasant to be around. I know he is missed by many.

Ann & Carol,
So sorry to hear of your dad‘s passing. Bill (and Rosella) treated my family with such love and kindness, and always with a warm and genuine smile. I have so enjoyed your dad’s art over the years and loved to brag about his paintings. He was special and will be dearly missed. God rest his soul.
