Jeanette & Family:

Words cannot express the sorrow Marv and I felt at finding out Bill just recently passed away. We hold both of you in a special place in our hearts from the moment we all met on our Caravan trip to Costa Rica all those years ago. We knew you both were very special the moment we all connected on the bus trip. We consider ourselves fortunate that we were able to join the both of you on our trip throughout Vegas and the Grand Canyon. Jeanette, even though we live on the East coast, please know our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time and for always.
Love, Marv & Rosanne

The passing of Bill evokes numerous memories, he always had a great smile and a warm heart, he reminded me of a teddy bear. Bill shared wine making expertise and was always ready to help when I needed a batch of grapes processed. Bill was a member of a group of parish men guiding the new members to the parish. These men are mostly gone now and are missed by us who followed them. To hear of his passing is a sad note in the passage of time.

It was a shock hearing of Bill’s passing. I first met Bill in June of 1966. We both went to work for Kroger Value Village at a warehouse on South Y Street in Fort Smith pricing general merchandise. We worked there for two weeks and then moved to the store on North O Street in Fort Smith. He was a wonderful person and will be missed by everyone that knew him. My prayers for Jeanetta and the family.

I’m so sorry to hear about Bill. Although I didn’t get to see him often, I loved keeping up with him on Facebook. Such a great cook, carpenter, family man, and husband.
I remember the great times I got to spend with the Anhalt family during the summers.

Worked for Bill at the Tyson plant in Dardanelle as a QA tech. I am also a retired veteran. We used to talk about our time in the Guards and drawing our retirement pay at 60. When I applied for a Supervisor position with Tyson and got it; Bill pulled me into his office. I never forgot that conversation. He told me he had put in a good word for me and had backed me "Don't let me down". I didn't. All the years working with him, never knew he was born in Paris AR. That is where I was born, Paris Hospital. Dr Charles Smith. What a small world. Rest in peace Bill. You were a great guy! Prayers to the family.
