    I began working with Bill 40 years ago at a plant start-up in Virginia. In the ensuing years we both found the loves of our lives working at same plant, Bill found Peggy and I found Dianne. We became a “foursome” over the ensuing years. In retirement, Bill and Peggy “sold us” on the Villages, and we became official villagers 11 years ago.

    When you spend all that time with a person, working together, having fun together, and working thru life’s challenges, you come to understand the qualities that make that person unique. I learned about Bill’s qualities, and respected him for them.

    Bill’s qualities were Integrity, Responsibility, and Compassion.

    I have 3 Bible verses to illustrate how Bill exemplified those qualities…..


    I know, my God, that you examine our hearts and rejoice when you find integrity there. You know I have done all this with good motives, and I have watched your people offer their gifts willingly and joyously. (1 Chronicles 29:17, NLT)

    Bill was one of the most honest and factual people I know. He never “played politics”. You always knew he had thought things thru before he took a position on it, and he had the facts and data to back it up.


    Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness. (Romans 12:6-8)

    Bill always was looking out for others, figuring out how to serve them with his special gifts. Whether the setting was work, Virginia local politics, or groups of friends, he was always looking to be additive to the larger effort.


    Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. (1 Peter 3:8)

    Bill always fancied himself a “thinker”, ruled by his brain. But many times I saw his heart shine through, with a deep emotional commitment to the subject of his thoughts.

    So, here we are today. The journey together on this earthly plain is over. Bill is now a pioneer for the rest of us, making the transition to Heaven. I’m sure those unique “ Bill qualities” will be admired there, just as we were the beneficiaries of them here.
