Memories Timeline

  2. My family and I send our deepest condolences. I wish we could come in person next week to share this time with you, but do know I'm thinking of you all. I pray that my Uncle Bill is at peace now and I hope all his family stay strong during this time and bond together. I will always remember my loving Uncle Bill. Love his niece, Jennifer. xoxo

  3. My heart felt sympathy to your entire family.  Our entire family will Miss your Husband, Father and Grand Father. We know he was the Main Stay of our entire families and he was important to each and everyone of us.  We also wish all of your family members love and peace and we know everyone will be praying for him and that love is in everyone's heart for HIM.

Dad I will miss you and think about you every day of my life.  Thank you Dad for everything you have you have done for me and my family.  Everyone you touched in our family has come away with "Dad / grandpa has showed or taught me this.  Dad I will miss your smile and your "Hi Honey what's on the agenda today..LOVE YOU DAD YOUR PROUD DAUGHTER LIZANNE MARIA GOMEZ ….KISSES AND HUGS DADDY

  5. For my Dad I want to tell my dad how proud I was to have my dad as a father he always told me if I wanted thing's in life you work hard, so I did that knowing I need to be just like him a hard worker. When I would see my dad he would come to my shop and ask what he could do to help with, giving me his helping hand I Zonie will never forget that Daddy, I will miss you until I see you again yes my Heart is so sad by know that, that day will come song's I hear will always keep you in my mind! Dad go ride your bike now and be free and sing your song's like you had. Love you forever Dad with my 🙂 Zonie number 5..

  6. My cousin Bill will forever have a special place in my heart for his gentle and loving attitude toward all who knew him.  When Bill spoke to me as a child (and also as an adult) his persona emanated an unspoken caring love and respect which was a true reflection of who he truly was from deep within to all who knew him.  This world has lost the presence of a special man but Heaven is rejoicing in his arrival.  Bill, you will be missed but your life on earth made a difference to all of us you left behind.

  7. Harvey D Robeck

    I cherish the memories of Bill and my family. We worked together for

    40-50 years. One memory that means so much to me is when we went

    to Hartsel Buffalo hunting and brought back a buffalo in the back of my pickup truck

    to Denver on I 25.

  8. Tim and I want to say how sorry we are for the deep loss that the family is feeling at Bill's passing.  We only met him twice and yet we will not forget him.  Our prayers are for the family to know and experience the comfort of God that only He can give at a time like this.

    Much love,

    Tim & Stephanie Truong
