Bill will be remembered as a loving and devoted son, husband, father, and grandfather. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, and they had a lot of fun together. He and Betty both loved the Lord and instilled in their children and their families the importance of having a church family. He was certainly a hard worker and excellent provider for his family. He will be greatly missed. The family suggests that in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to Anson Community Hospice, a Division of Richmond County Hospice, 1119 US-1, Rockingham, NC 28379.
