    candle 6In 1982 Bill and our son, Eric joined the USMC together. I’ve heard of some of the antics those two did.

    We send our deepest sympathy to his family.

    candle 3Bill was a funny, kind, crazy and generous friend. Despite burning candle at both ends on a Marine Med cruise he bought and carried around a Llardo figurine for my mother. She absolutely cherished it. He was always a true friend. Super proud father and grandfather. RIP my brother and friend. You will be missed

    candle 1So sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. My thoughts and prayers go out for the family. I remember how funny he was when we were in school. I couldn’t picture him any other way, even as he got older. I will light a red candle because I know he was a Cardinals fan.

    I only knew Bill for a few years through my friends Ann Duggan and Ann Marie Lumetta but the great times we shared were priceless. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

    My condolences to Bill’s family and friends. We worked for the same company for a number of years and I got to know him a little bit at our company meetings. He was basically a trouble maker (in a good way), but that is why we all liked him. He will be missed. RIP Bill.

    candle 4Bill was a hard working, honest, speak your mind type of guy. He worked in our company for 10 plus years, and always gave it his all, and did the right thing all the time.

    He was always more concerned about doing right by the customer than he was about himself.

    He will be missed!

    candle 8I can’t believe you are no longer here.
    I enjoyed working with you for many years. With your straight forward approach we always knew what was on your mind.

    candle 2Bill was my boss for a few years, and even though he was tough ( tough love actually) he gave me
    a ton of knowledge in the business, … and there was nothing that Bill couldn’t or would’t tackle and excel at, especially
    when it came to buildings, materials, concrete and prep work …etc. Amazing ability and talent.. He is truly missed.
    My condolences to the family.

    Bill was one of the most generous, caring, mischievous people I knew. He always made sure any guest that visited was treated to a top notch experience while there. He came to visit Chris and I this past January. Said he need to see family at home. That was us, his family in little New Haven, In. He was always like a brother. His friendship to Chris has been unwavering and strong no matter how long our visits were between them. We are all shocked at his passing but he will also live on in everyone that knew him and was close to him. He will be truly missed. Rest in Peace! Our prays and hearts are there for you Jory! Much Love to you and your family.

    Christopher Staak , Pamela Smith (Parnin) and family
