Dear John and family Scott and I are so sorry to hear of Bills passing. I have such fond memories of him coming into the elevator, he was a great customer. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word, never was in a hurry. Hugs and prayers for your family. Roxie and Scott Glander

Dear Mary & Family- So very sorry hear of your loss. Such happy growing up memories of playing with Bill & John Stotler on East Main Street. And again your & Bill's hospitality when visiting with you on the farm. Had to show my Englishman husband what a real farm was like! Have never forgotten that. His kind & ready smile! What a gift to all. Knowing there is little to say-except we are all under Gods care & protection . Big Hugs Prudence Parker

Mary, Debbie, John, Jeff and families, My deepest sympathies to you. Bill always had a kind spirit and a smile. We know he is now in a place of no pain and renewed mind and body. I like to think he has already found a tractor and is enjoying this time of year there. Much love and prayers to all of you. Kelly Richter
