Bill will be remembered for his willingness to lend a hand, or share advice, and protect those he loved. As a husband, father, and grandfather, he was generous with his love and praise, for which we all are grateful. We will also remember him for driving more miles backwards than you will ever drive forward. Condolences may be shared with the family at www.CremationCenterKC.com
