    Bill was a great man. A great friend and even father. I've known bill through the 4 years I have worked at pest bear. He was a father figure to me. He brought the very first smile to my 3 month old son. He taught me many things at work. He even taught me ways of being a father myself. He had a huge impact to me in my life and in others. His family will always be part of mine and always welcome . I will miss bill and his ways. Love u man. !!!!!

    For years, the riverbank was where Your soul felt most at peace Your heart was most content when there With the fish and the geese But then, your spirit came to rest Where angels chose to roam And once equipped with ten pound test You made yourself at home. The sky became your deep blue sea The clouds became your shore And there, for all eternity You sat with friends galore Each angel was a fisherman Who had traded his pole For golden wings and a game plan At Heaven’s Fishing Hole. The tales you told about each catch Its stature and its girth Will live in memories unmatched As days pass here on earth Until we meet again, one day Upon God’s golden sand We’ll picture you, no other way Than with a pole in hand. ~ Poetry byJill Eisnaugle’s

    So sad to hear of this. Billy you truely were an amazing soul. Always quick to make someone laugh. I’ll never forget the fun times that we’re had in the woods. Kids flocked to you like glue. Letting Logan know that you passed away was almost as hard a thing to do as telling him about my dad. He loved you. He talked about you ALL THE TIME. About the 22 rifle that you gave him, which he still has and how much he loved swinging on your rope swing in front of the cabin. And how much he loved the 4 wheeler that we bought from you. How much he liked hanging around Your place and how much fun you are. You will truely be missed. You have some pretty awesome company up there in heaven. May you Rest In Peace.
