Robert and Judy I am so sorry for your loss.
I have known Bill for almost 60 years and worked side by side with him at 3M for the first 10 years of my career at 3 M> You will not find a more honest, sincere dedicated and Christian man anywhere. Bill was loved and respected by many .He truly was a deeply religious man. May he rest in peace in the arms of the almighty.
