Bill will be sadly missed. Bill and Delores have been much more than next door neighbors for the past 20 years. Their friendship has made them an integral part of our extended family. Bill always liked a home cooked meal, something on the grill or a burger at "The Hilltop". Afterward he liked a "piece of Pie" or other dessert along with a cup of coffee. We spent many a summer evening by a bonfire on the deck gazing at stars, watching the flashing lights of commercial aircraft soar thru the sky or watching tiny tree frogs climb the condo siding with their suction cup like feet.
Bill was always busy building or renovating something. His ambition and energy was always that of a man half his age. We did some joint projects and he liked to take the lead. Rest in Peace Bill. Lead the way, until we see you again.
— Nancy and Gerry Mueller
