as told by his daughter, Melody
Bill passed away on May 26,
2010. Our deepest sympathies to his family.
My father, Bill, is truly my
hero. He is a high achiever, hard worker, and extremely
creative. He started a garden center and landscape business with
my mother, Karen, over 30 years ago, and with his artistic
vision, it has evolved into a landscape of paradise.
For 15 years, he has struggled
with life-threatening health problems...and told several times
he would surely die. He has had 1/4 of his lung removed, one
kidney removed, surgery on his bladder, triple by-pass surgery,
a pacemaker, and years of chemo. Through all the suffering, he
has shown such strength, and Faith in God...this has become his
testimony. When told there is a risk he might not make it, my
father always responds "Being born is a risk too."
Bill has one grandson, Luke (age
7) who he adores.
My father Bill, holds onto his
Faith and walks with the Lord in "His time always." Bill, one
great man, because he's a man.
He enjoys wood carving, gardening, classic cars/hot rods
and going to the drag races.
