Barbra Bradford wrote a sympathy message

“I am honored to have known Bill and his beloved wife, Ellavene. He was the kind of man you would like your children to become; good, kind, caring, thoughtful and just plain nice. He had a great sense of humor and enjoyed a good laugh -- even at himself! He was very proud of his family. He was a great friend. He will be sorely missed. Can you imagine the stories he will share with the Angels? My deepest condolences to his beloved wife and family. Very sincerely, Barbra Bradford”
