Karen and family,
So many memory’s with Bill, I met him in 1994 I was a young field service rep and this was my second visit to Truck Centers his first words to me were who are you. So it started we became pretty good friends all though he was a crotchety old fart. As a customer he was top shelf, we spent a lot of time on the golf course neither of us were any good. Then there was the trip to the cottage at the Lake of the Ozarks wow what a time my family still talks about “Party Cove” we’ll leave at that!
My heart felt sorrow goes out to the family and know that Bill is having a glass of Markam Merlot with the All Mighty!!
