A solid friend, a good person, and a great family man; a pretty good life resume.

Very sad loss. I loved Bill and Brenda. Hard to say his name without hers. What an all around great guy. I'm so glad they came to reunion. I loved talking with him.

Sadness for those of us you left behind, but a joyous day for you.

May God bless and comfort Brenda and Chuck.

Bill and I shared many classes over the years.  He was a funny upbeat guy.  May he RIP.
