I extend symphony to the family of Bill .
I met Bill many years ago when I was a member of the Franklin County Fair Board. I had many wonderful conversations with Bill and other Butler County Fair Board members. He was a true gentleman and I always felt honored to consider him a friend.
Our deepest sympathy to Lois, Holly, Mark and family. We have many special memories of him with the horses and fair. Hugs to all of you.

My deepest sympathy to Mark and family. I have only the fondest memories of Bill in all the years of the Allison Bowling league in Greene. May he rest in peace.
Wayne and I sent our sympathy to you Lois and to your family! The beautiful memories live on!
Lois and Mark, so sorry for the loss of Bill! He was a great man and will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you both during this sadness
Our sympathy goes out to the family. I believe he bought the Implement store from my Great Uncle Hiney Allan. He was always so nice to my Great Aunt Ione. He truly was a wonderful man who did many things for Allison. John Allan
Our prayers are with the Jacobs family and many good memories of the Implement store. Hugs to Lois, Holly & Mark and family. Dave & Deb
