It has been said that Bill lived in too many places, had too many friends, had too many jobs and had too much fun. It would take too long to mention them all! Bill enjoyed reading mysteries, going to libraries, spending time with friends and family, and traveling the world. He treasured his friendships with his Sunday School friends from Spring Valley United Methodist Church and Preston Hollow United Methodist Church in Dallas.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 10, 2018, at 10:00 am at Spring Valley United Methodist Church, 7700 Spring Valley Road, Dallas, Texas 75254. After the service, a reception will be held at the church.
