So sorry to read this news. It was a pleasure to work with Bill, Shirley, and their sons on numerous residential projects. My prayers for peace to be upon each member of the family.

Bill was such a stand up guy. I will miss him for sure. I think of all the things that he helped get the ball rolling on in this town and things that wouldn't have happened without him. He was always behind the scenes on some of the major developments in town and he couldn't care less for getting a pat on the back, he just liked to see it happen. He was a true visionary and I loved hearing about new ideas he had. He was bright, charming and could figure out a way to get projects done when anyone else would have given up. I'm so sorry for his families loss, but I know they will make him proud and keep the vision alive.

I'm was so sorry to hear of Bills passing. I only met him a few times, but he was an intelligent, insightful person. My deepest condolences to Shirley and the rest of the family.
