Bill was a great guy, yes he was a prankster and he loved life to the fullest. I’ve know Bill since the early 90’s. Our kids went to school together and then we connected at church, CFC. There we were in a bible study small group, we went to Washington DC on the million man march through Promise Keepers. We went to Camp Carson to help refurbish one of the cabins there. I’ve not seen Bill for about a year but it seems like it was yesterday.
Rest In Peace my Brother.
