Oh “uncle Bill”! Why did you go?! You are gone, but will never be forgotten. I walked into Sears at 18 as a new employee right out of high school. We were fast friends despite the age difference. Over time we became family. I’m now 53. That 35 years went too fast. I love you! I’ll see ya on the flip side. You better be there to greet me. I’ll talk to you often. Cheers my friend! 🍺 Love, Mindolla ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I'm so sorry to hear the loss of your father. I worked with Bill at Sears for many years. There is so many wonderful memories I have of him. The biggest being his given heart to anyone that needed his help. Also, how he loved to throw wonderful parties for all his friends and family. It's given me so much happiness to have had him in my life. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. 🙏🙏 PamGifford

Bill was a great neighbor on Gateway Drive, and we had many good memories being with him and Jan. We love you.

Debbie, I was saddened to learn of Bill's passing. He was one of my favorite people when we worked together at Sears. He was always kind to me and took me under his wings when I moved from the stockroom to the sales floor. He will truly be missed; one of a kind!!! Det. G. Shadie
