    Billy was the best barn manager we ever had. We loved him like crazy and are so heartbroken. He was an amazing soul. He had such a passion with the horses and never had a bad thing to say about anyone. The ranch will never be the same. He was a dear friend who will truly be missed everyday… We are so sorry for your loss

    It’s not often in today’s world to even know your neighbors name. Will was a very rare exception to this standard. Always good conversation, and would help anyone anyway he could. He was never a neighbor, he was just a good friend to have in your corner. Blessed to have known someone with such a pure heart as will. rest in paradise brother

    After reading all the comments I am sorry that I never got to meet and know Billy. It’s hard to find a kind, respectable man that will be there for anyone in need. May it comfort you to know that he is in the arms of our Lord and is in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you as you celebrate his life today.

    William Rumsey was the most kind hearted person I have ever had the pleasure to know. He was so very respectful of everyone. He would do anything for anyone, but would never ask anyone else for help. He helped me many times with little household repairs. I can’t thank him enough for all the ways he helped my son Devan. He was a true friend. Everyone loved him. The world truly needs more people like Will. You will be dearly missed by all.

    Will was the definition of a good respectful and loyal friend. We were blessed to move into a neighborhood that had such a kind hearted and full of life soul! He made us feel welcome from day one and began to build a great friendship along the way. I always felt safe and knew if we needed anything he’d always be there! We even started a Christmas tradition of using real trees because Will bought us our first one when he noticed one year we didn’t have one. He watched over me as my husband would have to work out of town, helped with yard work, our dog escaping, and kept the kids excited to see him and his daily greetings or hear his motorcycle. It won’t be the same without him when we remember our first home together we will always remember Will!!!! He would do anything for anyone and in the most kindest whole hearted way. Brought such sunshine to our street and will forever be missed and a little less sunny without him.

    I just learned of Will’s passing today. Sadness can not begin to describe the aching hurt in my heart. There was and never will be another “Will”! Seeing him from time to time always brightened my day. Always an uplifting word and a handshake that would make Atlas drop to his knees. Genuine and true!! May he rest in the Eternal arms of God!

    Billy and I were very close friends for many years. He was the most sweet, kind and respectful man. He would do anything for anyone and never asked for anything in return. It’s been almost 3 years since he passed and I think about him often. I miss you brother. I will see you on the other side when my time comes. Hopefully we will be able to have some star crunch and Dr. Peppers when we reunite in heaven.
