    I knew Bill when he was a member of the Sumner County Vintage Vehicle Club and from the Hendersonville Cruise In. A man of wit and humor and a friend who will be missed. God Speed Bill.

    Bill was friend of mine for many years. He help a lot of people over those years both professionally as a paramedic, and personally. He will be missed.
