Uncle Bill, you are greatly missed.I remember the camping trips we took with you and Aunt Pat when I was younger.
Gordon, Glenn, Gerald and Gary, please know we offer our deepest sympathy. We feel so blessed that we were friends to your mom and dad. We had so many good times with him in the neighborhood and camping - and then we would visit them in Arkansas after he retired. We pray that memories you have with him gives you peace and comfort. He ws special. Hugs from Missouri.Mary and Darrel Stuteville
So very sad about this. I have so many found memories of Uncle Bill & Aunt Pat, it would take pages to list them all. From childhood days of visiting them at their home in Olathe, sleeping in their basement, marveling at all his electronics and sound system, swimming in their pool, to later years in adulthood, being together for summer cookouts, or a holiday dinner, talking computers. I cherish one of the last visits we had with him in person when we all went out to eat after my youngest son bought his car. I wish we had one more of those times. I am really going to miss him. To Gordon, Glenn, Gary, and Gerald and your families, and to his sister (my mom) - my thoughts and prayers are for you.
So very sorry for your loss. Our Dads are special to us all. Hugs and prayers.
