Our deepest condolences, Uncle Bill loves his fishing. He took my daughter fishing and how to shoot a gun for her first time. When she came home she was so excited, she said mom Grandpa Bill Taught me how to fish or shoot a gun. She considered Uncle Bill as Grandpa because growing up that was her Grandpa. We are sure going to miss your tinkering in your garage and the car/cars you loved so dear and drove Aunt Fern crazy. Our hearts are broken for the loss of you. Aunt Fern I love you. You were there for me and Averie when mom passed away, and still today. Averie, Clint and I are here for you. Anything, anytime 24/7. We love with all our hearts.
