    My grandpa was one of the most selfless and loving men I’ve ever knew. I fondly remember when all of us grandkids would play hide and seek in the dark while he counted from his chair before finding us. We all swore he always peaked and made comments about his “eagle eyes” cause he always found us so fast. His love for his grandkids was absolutely immeasurable.
    He was hands down the best man I ever knew.

    I grew-up down the street from Bill on Magnolia. I believe he lived with his grand parents. He had it pretty rough back then but was a sweet human being despite it all. Rest in peace Bill.
