    I am Bill’s niece and spent a lot of my childhood with him and Debbie. Uncle Bill taught me how to shoot pool and a gun. We had so many holidays and vacations. I am thankful for those memories and that my children got to also know his love. The day he passed I welcomed my second granddaughter into the world. And I know she will always have him watching over her. He was an amazing man who opened his heart to so many. He will be truly missed by all of us. Rest In Peace Uncle Bill. I love you.
