  1. Bill was a member of Bethesda Baptist church in Palmer Springs which is where my husband and I met he and his wife, Alice. We were also in the CMH auxiliary together for many years. We had the privilege of being sponsors for Bill and Alice for the Emmaus Walk with the Southside Community which meant so much for Bill. Loved talking with Bill and hearing about his travels through life. Our sympathy to the family.
