Worked with Bill and enjoyed every minute of it. Sad to see him go and have to be in the heavens. Love and miss you brother. Hope your family is at peace and my prayers go out to them in this time of pain.

I was so sorry to hear that Bill passed. He worked for me at Lehigh Clay Products and was always a hard worker and was liked by me and every one he worked with. He was the life of the party. RIP WILD BILL

My dad was a hard working, tough son of a gun that always seemed to bring a smile to everyones face with his crazy and most of the time dirty lol since of humor. He most definitely was a people person and brought life to the party, even if it wasn't a party...
He knew everyone in town and then some, and was a great friend to every single one .He was caring, and concerning,always helpful when he could be, and always one you could sit and end up talking to for hours.
Im proud to say he was my father, and he did the best he could as any father could with raising me. He was responsible for sharing his love of music both KISS & The Doors to me, as well as half of Fort Dodge i think lol.
Dad love you to the moon and back.And miss u soo much!! Rest well, and keep watch over ur 3 grandsons,Don and myself. Till we see each other again..... XOXO

Billy was one of my first Sacred Heart school friends and remained a good friend for life. Always one to greet me with “Hey Klink”!! and he had real concern about how things were going. A great laugh and awesome sense of humor he truly was one of a kind. I too will think of him every time I hear a KISS song! RIP BILLY

I remember when Billy was born and as a child him running around our neighborhood with his arms out like he was flying. When he learned to read he would proudly sit and read to me on my parents front porch. He had the most beautiful eyes and was so likable. Rest in peace Billy and my sincere sympathy to Donnie and Mary Ellen. Kathy Andrews Lawler

Billy was one of the very first friends I had and he was a good friend. We had a lot of fun together and a whole lot of laughs. He had a good heart and treated people kindly. Mr. and Mrs. McGough, I am truly sorry for the pain you are feeling. He is no longer suffering. Peace my friend.
