An officer and gentleman. I was proud to call him my father in law. I will always carry some wonderful memories with me. Rest in peace, sweet man.

Bill was one of the finest gentleman we knew. When I married his stepson, he welcomed me into the family with open arms and for a brief time we were a family in Texas. He was kind, caring, and loving. He was always willing to help whether it was cutting tree limbs or taking care of our cat. No was not in his vocabulary. We were happy he found love and happiness in Florida. Gloria, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Marie and Duff Culwell

Travis Dickinson and Dolores Dean left a message on April 17, 2013:
I moved in next door to Bill in April 2003 and was his neighbor until he, and then I, moved in 2008. My spouse died in 2006 as did his wife Lou. I value having known Bill and sharing life experiences. Dolores and I had the pleasure of meeting Gloria and breaking bread with her and Bill at the Charlotte Yacht Club. We both know the trauma of losing a spouse and extend our deepest sympathy to Gloria and Bill's family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Colonel, I will miss your sweet smile at Publix. I just saw you one or two days before your passing. I asked how you were and you shrugged your shoulders and said, "I've been better". I wished we had more time to talk as the store was busy. I will always remember you and how straight you stood. Your military stance as I called it. I am sad you are gone from us but I feel safer knowing you're in control in the sky. Rest my sweet friend. I know you were tired. You served us all so well. I will miss you. Your cashier, Pat

I only knew Bill for about 5 years but he always was cheerful, dedicated to the preservation of AMERICA. Veteran's day he would wear his uniform & his car had 2 American flags flying. He & Gloria made a very happy couple. I will miss him. Dick Dorsch
