Billy and I were best friends in grade school. In fact we lived a 1/4 mile apart in the country on what is now called Roppel Road or County Road 11. We would get off of the bus early down at the highway and walk home. We threw rocks, sticks and rummaged in the brush along the gravel road. It took the bus an hour to make it's rounds back to our road and we often got passed by the bus as we were still not home. When his family moved at probably the 3rd grade, maybe fourth I lost touch with him. We were kids and didn't understand what happened and then how to stay in touch. I am so sorry for your loss...and in a small way I feel some of it too. - Lonnie Shepard

Sorry to hear of Bill's passing. We graduated together and our birthdays are just one day apart. He was a good guy with a nice sense of humor. I will miss seeing him at our reunion next year. - Mike Taylor

Billy was a hard kid to forget. Always full of energy and mischief. (I had forgotten that Lonnie was involved in that partnership!) If I remember correctly, there were several of the girls in grade school that had crushes on the both of them! Also, I remember, Peggy Harris, (my best friend then and still consider her that today even though she still lives in Missouri and I am In Maine), talking about Billy and wondered where he was living. God Bless and I am sorry for your loss. Brenda (Yelton) Donovan - Newcastle, Maine

Trudy and family I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the memories that are yours to cherish forever. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers Tammy & Floyd Turner
