Bill was a member of Dayspring Wesleyan Church where he had become a devoted Christian wanting to live his life for his heavenly father.  Bill had made many friends at the church and touched all lives that he had come in contact with.  Bill was a quiet backseat type man.  Bill could sport a ball cap and even dress clothing and was come to be known by that,  sorry I didn't think ahead to have a hat placed on you for your calling hours and funeral, mom did buy one to go in the casket with you though,  we loved you so much.
