Bill always said: “If I can make someone smile, then they may forget their problems, if even for a minute.” Bill is survived by wife JoAnn, children Janet (Michael Mims) of Frankston, Texas, Patricia Sullivan of Harrison, Arkansas, Karla Scholl of Lincoln, Nebraska, Thomas (Bon) of Garner, Iowa and Douglas (Junko) of Colorado Springs, Colorado.
