  2. To Margaret & the family of Bill,

    I was very sorry to ready in the local paper of Bill’s death. We enjoyed the many years that he and those close to him belonged to and played golf at Vermilion Hills/Wolfcreek Golf Course. We have missed him since he has been gone from Danville. God bless you for your devotion to his care and my thoughts are with you in his passing.

  4. Linda, Bill and Mark.
    I’m very sorry to learn of your Dad’s passing. We sure had a lot of good times through the years. He was a great friend to Mom and Dad and in later years, I sure enjoyed bowling with him. I have many great memories of our times together.

    God Bless
