I worked with Bill in the early 90's at Arco in Midland. He was a great guy. We used to walk to the library at lunch to check out books. I will miss him. Mike Sura

Bill was such a delightful man. I met him in 2017 at St Lukes playing Wednesday night bridge until he was no longer able to get there. He accompanied a group of us to some MCT productions and he invited me to Polo Park for Sunday bridge. I always enjoyed his company......he was always smiling and very friendly. I know he was in great demand at Polo Park dances! He will be missed but never forgotten. It was a pleasure to know him.

My condolences to the family. He was a special man - intelligent, athletic, kind and caring, easy going, a man of integrity. He married Sandy Bramlett - my mother - in - law, and they continued to enjoy an active life -------tennis, kayaking, dancing, and travelling. I admired how he continued to be active, and teach physics at UTPB. He took great care of himself, and cared for those he encountered. He had a great , and full life..........RIP.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
