  • I am so sorry to hear that Bill passed away. I was hoping that his condition would be helped in time. I will miss seeing him at the 7-11 store where he stopped by almost every day. And his favorite candy bar will be etched into my mind. I really liked Bill and hope that the family will take strength from above to help them through this.

  • I have had the pleasure of working with bill throught my career at energy northwest.

    He would always stop to shake my hand no matter what he was doing or holding and then have a short story to tell, usualy funny.

    He is one of those good guys you always wanted to see during the outage and any other time of the year.

    There will be a void during the next ougate.

    He would always be asking what I was carving on and then have a snipit or bite of advise and we would both laugh as it was funny as well. And if I had a stick with me he would call it a shalele! and then giggle.

    Bill you will be missed in my world and may god bless him and his family.
