Uncle Ed, Aunt Mary and Family, I was shocked and saddened to hear of Bill’s passing. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers during your time of loss. My deepest condolences ❤️

I was one of the Honda people that trained Bill when he first hired in many years ago. Very young fellow at the time and I was so impressed with him. Super nice and very eager to learn. I was extremely sad to hear of his passing. May the Lord wrap his loving arms around his family and friends, to support and guide them through this difficult time. Many prayers are being said for you all. God bless.

Condolences for Bill's family. I just wanted to pass on how much Bill meant to his friends at Honda. He was a great guy and was very dedicated to his job. His sense of humor always made him fun to be around. We rode to work together at times, worked together, and enjoyed poker games. Bill was always willing to lend a hand if needed. He will be missed by many friends and family.. Fly high Billy boy

So sorry for your loss, Prayers to you’re family.

- Joshua Callicoat , Thursday December 13th, 2018

I am so sorry for your loss. Slat line at work does not seem the same without seeing Bill walk down the line. He was always putting a piece of chocolate in my tool bag or my hand when he knew I was having a rough day. I hope that there is comfort for you in knowing how many of us miss him at work.

- Tracy Strange, Thursday December 13th, 2018

I was blessed and honored to know Bill as a brother and a friend, we talked often of life’s challenges and Honda’s challenges as well and always had a good time with each other’s answers for both. He was a man of few mistakes but many accomplishments, from being a awesome father, good brother and amazing friend. He will be imitated by many for years to come because his since of humor was memorable. His smile, confidence and true being will live with me for a lifetime, I will forever miss you my brother and when we meet again be ready for another good time, convince God we are all good guys just having a good time and we’ll ride again my brother, God bless you, your soul and family. Peace out ✌️

- John Pierce, Wednesday December 12th, 2018

Worked for bill in ex09 and I must say he became more than a TL he became a friend and even sometimes family depending on the day lol. I would discuss things of my divorce or life struggles and he always listened with an open ear and a cheesy grin sometimes he had many nicknames depending on the mood he could be bill , Billy if I wanted something or daddy Billy if he wasn't listening haha but he was a honest straight forward guy and I couldn't have asked for a better person to be apart of my life he will be sorely missed and his legacy and grin will live on for eternity . So this ones for you as I said when I saw you Monday ( see ya buddy ) Sincerely Jordan "biggins" cayot

- Jordan cayot , Wednesday December 12th, 2018

I knew Bill through Honda. He was a great guy. Always knew how to make you laugh,whether it was his witty charm or his compliments. He will be greatly missed. My heart goes out to his family and friends. R.I.P.

- Sandy Andrix , Wednesday December 12th, 2018

Bill was my team leader at Honda and for only knowing him for a year, it's obvious he was loved by so many and will be missed very dearly. I could not have asked for a better team leader and I am honored to have worked for him. He was a great guy inside and out. If I was having a bad day, he knew exactly what to say or do to make me laugh and I will forever be thankful for that. I am so sorry to the family for such a tragic event. You are all in my deepest thoughts and prayers. God bless.

- Mackenzie Jadloski, Wednesday December 12th, 2018

- Bob Caldwell, Wednesday December 12th, 2018

I knew Billy from work ... Very good guy ..... prayers for his family.. Rest In Peace ...

- Randy Slygh, Wednesday December 12th, 2018

Bill was my friend, my coworker, my neighbor but most of all He was my buddy...Even though I drove to honda for almost thirty years, he would still call me in the morning and evenings and tell me how the roads were, or where there was an accident or maybe a cop sitting to deliver a ticket. Bill was a kind, caring and giving person who cared aboit people's feelings. Bill raised all three of his children on his own by himself and did a great job in doing so... That alone tells me what kind of man he was. What type of person he was, and what was the most important to him and his family. Bill was a strong man, a loving brother, a great son, a wonderful father,and a special friend to me and so many others who entered his life. I will mis our talks after work but most of all I will mis his friendship. I know your family is grieving but please take time to smile, laugh, tell a joke, say a kind word and let those near to your heart how much you care and love them. That's the true Bill, the one I will always remember. God bless tour family.
