    Bill was a beloved nephew of mine, my eldest sister, Sally’s son. His passing has left a very large emptiness in the hearts of all his family. He will be greatly missed. He was so very much loved by us all. Rest in peace darling Bill & may God hasten you on your way to His loving & welcoming arms. Aunt Beverly

  2. Bill was a good man and a good friend. He always made me smile. He even gave me a place to stay when I needed it. I loved riding in one of his old cars to rodeos to watch Dennis ride. We moved from Billings years ago, so it had been a while since we’d seen him, but we thought and spoke of him often. Goodbye my dear friend…You were one of a kind. God speed!

  3. Bill was a good man and a good friend. He always made me smile. Once he even gave me a safe place to stay when I needed it. I loved the couple of trips we took to rodeos, in one of his old cars, to see Dennis ride. We moved from Billings years ago so it had been a while since we’d seen him, but we thought and spoke of him often.
    Goodbye our friend and God speed.
    Bryan, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
