Bill is the reason we joined Valley View Baptist several years ago. We met him when we lived in Farmers Branch and was kinda, sorta looking for a church. He just happened to be at Valley View mowing the lawn when we stopped in to talk to him. Because he was so nice and inviting we came to church there within the following couple of weeks. We became friends instantly. It wasn't long after that he was able to retire himself of doing the church lawn upkeep because Lawrence volunteered to do it and give Bill a much needed rest. We will forever be grateful to Bill for taking the time to talk to us that day. He will be truly missed. RIP Bill....we love you!

Bill was a good friend and faithful Christian. We ate lots of meals together and drank lots of coffee. Rich and I owe a huge debt of gratitude to him for getting us together. I always told him it was his fault and he always got a big laugh out of it. We'll miss you! Tell all our loved ones hello in Heaven.
