Sending my deepest condolences to the family. It has been 40 or more years since I knew what had become of Bill. My best memories are of spending time with him and the family. Such a wonderful mother, father and sisters. Good laughs. good meals. Also, through his early 20's he was always around for friends to give anyone who needed a ride or money. 5:30am rides to the bus stop so my father who was in poor health did not have to get out of bed. Always grateful for the memories and knowing Bill was so blesses to have such a caring and beautiful family. Sincerely, Cindy Minor-Jones.
