2011-08-15 16:14:40"Bill" You were one of the kindest & hardest working men i've known. As a friend, i knew you to be a devoted husband, father and grandfather. You truly loved the lord and it showed in the way you were with people on a personal basis and in your business transactions. You always treated people fairly and with respect. Indeed, a generous man you were, giving freely of your time, knowledge workforce and/or what was needed. You loved your community, church, and family dearly. I thank you for all the advice and wisdom you shared with me over the years. You touched many a heart and soul. Your professional, business and life lessons shared did not go on deaf ears They will forever be dear to me and continually used throughout my lifes endeavors. You were a true friend. Godspeed My Friend. You Will Be Missed.

my name is DeWitt Fitts and knew Bill as I was his customer and he was mine. He was a stand up guy with dignity, grace and poise who spoke his mind clearly and politely and appreciated the same from you.

I respected Bill and liked him. I will miss a man with quiet strength of purpose who did not dwell on what what went wrong in things but took what he needed from the wreck of circumstance and built on what he learned.

Bill Fears word was sound and he was clearly unafraid of mortality.

My little business will miss his company and comments. Judy Finley, Tracy Vaughn and I work together and knew Bill and we share your loss.

2011-08-21 21:31:39I am missing Bill as a great friend and neighbor. He always pulled over to speak and check on me when he saw me at the driveway. He was an intelligent man, kept a positive attitude, and set a great example as a hard working man.
My thoughts are with you, Dwayne and family.
